The negotiations between Khyber Pakhtunkhuwa (KP) government and the on-strike doctors have been successful, Waqt News reported. The report comes after KP Chief Minister Pervaiz Khattak and a delegation of the doctors on strike met earlier today.

According to sources the CM has accepted the demand of doctors regarding service structure in the province.

"Both sides have reached common ground and the doctors will now report on duty,” reports added.

While talking to the media KP CM Pervaiz Khattak said the government will not compromise on the medical system for poor. “We have no intention to privatize hospitals. We are implementing a transparent and neutral structure in KP hospitals,” he said.

The KP government and doctors have been at loggerheads since the last few months. The doctors were on strike for the last few days owing to which patients had been facing severe difficulties over medical treatment in the hospitals.

KP government has implemented the Essential Service Act under the order of Peshawar High Court.
