DAK welcomes ban on private practice of HoDs


Srinagar, Jan 18: Welcoming the ban on private practices of Head of Departments in the Government run hospitals in the state, the Doctor Association Kashmir (DAK) on Friday said the move would improve the patient care and improve teaching and research in Medical Colleges.
 “In February 2011, DAK was the first to demand banning of private practice of faculty in tertiary care teaching hospitals terming it as the root cause of deterioration of Medical Colleges,” said DAK president, Dr Nisar-ul-Hassan in a statement here.
 “It is round the clock presence of faculty in tertiary care teaching and training hospitals that ensures quality and efficient patient care,”  he said the DAK demands banning of private practice of all faculty members in tertiary care teaching hospitals for efficient patient care, better teaching and quality research.       
 “The banning of private practice in Government sector would generate employment avenues for doctors in private sector, allowing it to grow, creating a competitive environment which is needed for a comprehensive health care scenario in the state,” he said.
 The DAK urged the Government to address some of the long pending demands of medical faculty and implement medical council of India guidelines in total. “The government should release the salary of in service postgraduates and remove the pay anomaly of postgraduates who are the backbone of tertiary care hospitals,” Dr Nisar said.
 The DAK also demanded that recruitment of Principal medical colleges should be made transparent by properly advertising with clear cut defined eligibility criteria and selection for these key posts should be made by an expert panel. “Taj Mohiuddin is a brave and honest person  but has to come up to the expectations of people of state. He has to create a system which would allow medical fraternity to deliver its best to people in a fearless environment and make common man comfortable in hospitals,” Dr Nisar said.
