A nationwide doctors' strike initially planned for next week won't take place after all.
The Korean Medical Association said Thursday it was calling off the plan and accepting a tentative agreement reached with the government on contentious medical policies.
The announcement followed a poll of 41-thousand KMA doctors, in which 62 percent voted to accept the deal.
It includes a plan to carry out a trial run of a controversial telemedicine system. and allow hospitals to build for-profit subsidiaries.
The planned six-day strike was to start next Monday and followed a one-day doctors' strike earlier this month.
