Health dept to rope in private doctors

Ludhiana July 10:

With posts of women Medical Officer and Gynaecologist lying vacant in several primary health centres (PHSs) and community health centres (CHSs), the state health department has decided to take the services of private doctors at these centres.

Sources say the department has invited applications from private practitioners to outsource obstetrics.The doctors have been asked to provide OPD and delivery services whenever required at selected PHCs/CHCs.

Applications have been invited for part-time women medical officers at PHCs and part-time gynaecologists at CHCs. Krishan Kumar, Managing Director, National Rural Health Mission, Punjab, said they had already started receiving applications. He said through this endeavour, they would be able to bring down mother and infant mortality rate.
