THE PROVINCIAL Medical Services Association (PMSA) would register its protest with chief minister against the new order that puts villagers as the monitoring authority of the doctors working at CHCs and PHCs.
In an emergency meeting of the association held today it was decided that a delegation of the association would meet the CM and the Chief Secretary on Monday.
“We would first put up our protest and the reasons behind it before the CM and the higher officials of the department. If attention is not given to our protest then the working committee would decide the future course of action on March 26,” PMSA president Dr DP Mishra said.
PMSA is opposing the order that has already been served to the chief medical officers asking them to visit one CHC and PHC every week. The CMOs would fill up a chart of attendance also for the staff deputed at these health centres.
The deputy CMOs shall follow the same.
More so the pradhans, village development officers, block development officers would now monitor and verify the working of doctors at these health centres.
The order has been taken seriously by the PMSA and it has decided to oppose it at every cost.
“How could a person who is not qualified in clinical aspects check and verify the work of an MBBS doctor,” said association secretary Dr Jai Singh.
Association members also claimed that implementation of the new order would give chance for corruption as the doctors would then manage the village pradhans and get their duty sheets duly filled without even actually going to work.
