THE STATE Government is in the process of filling up 1000 posts of staff nurse at various urban and rural health centres of the State under the Reproductive and Child Health (RCH) programme.

Health Minister Ajay Vishnoi said today that the appointments, to be done in about a week’s time, would be on contract basis. There are 2800 sanctioned posts of staff nurse while 2710 are presently filled up.

The minister added that concerted steps were being undertaken to augment health services in MP. As part of that, while recruitments were being made on contract basis, doctors absent from duty for long periods without permission had been sacked, he pointed out.

Vishnoi informed that 4670 posts of doctors are sanctioned in MP and 302 new posts were approved this year. In 2005, 27 reserved category doctors had been appointed on regular basis through the state public service commission while 103 doctors of the same category had been appointed on contractual basis.

The minister stated that 238 doctors had been appointed under the RCH programme while 80 postgraduate doctors were posted in various health centres. 300 new posts of doctors had been created for rural areas and 179 candidates had so far been selected on those posts.
