ARSHAD M BHAT
Srinagar, Mar 24: The authorities in SK Institute of Medical Sciences, Soura have initiated disciplinary action against two doctors, allegedly caught by a special squad of district administration, while indulging in private practice in the City.
“The medicos have been given two week time to submit their reply,” Head Hospital Administration and Medical Superintendent, Dr (Prof) S Amin Tabish told Greater Kashmir on the sidelines of a press conference.
Regarding the presence of paramilitary Central Reserve Police Force men in a hospital building, Dr Tabish said, the personnel would be evacuated and shifted to another building to be constructed at the peripheries of Institute. “We took up the issue with the State Government who in turn raised it with the Home Ministry. The Home Ministry has consented to shift them and we are constructing a new building wherein they will be shifted,” he said adding the work on the structure would be started in April-May.
He said the Postgraduate Department of Hospital Administration was holding a two-day scientific conference on “Evidence Based Healthcare” from March 26 at SK International Convention Centre here.
The Union Minister for New & Renewable Energy, Dr Farooq Abdullah will be the chief guest while as Medical Education Minister, R S Chib, will be the guest of honour.
“The Conference, first of its kind, will provide a forum for exchange of expertise and useful interaction for the delegates from reputed hospitals, both public and private,” Dr Tabish said, adding the speakers of international repute would present paper/deliver talk of most current issues in healthcare.
“Evidence-based healthcare is the conscientious use of best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients or the delivery of Health Services,” he said, adding the objective of the meet was to generate ideas towards meeting the challenges of Healthcare Delivery in the 21st Century.
