Punjab health and family welfare minister Brahm Mohindra on Thursday said that the government has okayed appointment of 673 regular staff nurses and 919 multipurpose health workers.

The paramedical staff would be posted in various government and sub-divisional hospitals and community and primary health centres across the state. Mohindra said primary health services in the state were marred by shortage of staff in the past 10 years.

The government will not organise a state-level function to hand over appointment letters but will be sent via post within week with a copy to the civil surgeon. This will save time as well as wasteful expenditure, the minister said.

He said the counselling process for the recruitment of staff nurses had been completed.
