Punjab Government has issued a warning to the unregistered doctors practicing in the state.
Presiding over a high level meeting with the Health department officials Mr. Madan Mohan Mittal Minster for Health & Family Welfare took a serious note of such malpractices by the private doctors. He warned such unregistered doctors and said that such practices won’t be tolerated and no one would be allowed to play with the health of the people.
Minister said that it’s mandatory for private practitioners to get registered with the government and anyone not doing so should be ready to face strict action.
Minister instructed the officials should regularly keep a check on such doctors at district and block level. He added that if the concerned official does not report cases of unregistered doctors knowingly then action would be taken against such officials.
Minister said that innocent people have to face consequences of non professional doctors and sometimes people have to even lose their lives due to such malpractices.
Health Minster appealed to the people to cooperate with government to take action against such doctors. He said that people should avail medical facilities from government hospitals as government provides Health facilities to the people on very low affordable prices for common man.
