PANAMA CITY .- The medical specialists at Santo Tomas Hospital, suspended the strike that began last Monday to demand the payment of overtime for the last four months.

"Internal doctors and residents of the Santo Tomas Hospital raise work stoppages from 03.00 p.m.," the Ministry of Health (Minsa) said in its Twitter account.

According to local press, the doctors reached an agreement with the Ministry of Health and the hospital's management to set a timetable for overtime pay.

The government asked them last Tuesday to dismiss the strike, in their "unjustified" view because "already has paid more than 80% of the debt owed."
