Kerala to allow private practice of docs in govt colleges
Thiruvananthapuram: Congress-led UDF
government in Kerala may soon allow doctors in government
medical colleges to practise privately, an option banned by
the previous LDF regime.
The government will hold discussions with all concerned
parties and take a decision on allowing private practice of
doctors of medical colleges, with some pre-conditions, said
Health Minister Adoor Prakash.
The LDF government had banned private practice holding
that doctors were not getting enough time for research and
patients who approached medical colleges faced difficulties
due to this.
"The Government`s priority in health sector is to improve
infrastructure facilities in government hospitals and also
ensure good quality treatment," said Prakash.
He also said a 100-day action plan to develop facilities
in government hospitals and preventive measures to check
monsoon related diseases would be taken up on war-footing.
In order to overcome the shortage of doctors in
hospitals, permission has been given to authorities to appoint
doctors on temporary basis by holding walk-in-interviews at
district levels, he said.
