PESHAWAR, Dec 7: The Provincial Paramedical Association has urged the provincial government to immediately implement the service structure, bring reforms in the medical faculty and take action against all the employees avoiding duty.
According to a statement these demands were raised in a meeting of Peshawar division which was held at Khyber Teaching Hospital on Dec 6 with its provincial president Syed Ruidar Shah in the chair.
The participants said that work on the enhancement of posts in upper grades (restructuring) had been completed in the health department but it was yet to be further processed for implementation. They said that it was basic right of senior paramedics to get promotion and other facilities.
“We will hold provincial executive meeting on Dec 9 to decide future line of action on the issue of service structure,” the meeting unanimously announced. It also demanded of the government to stop ‘teasing’ the poor employees on instigation by some elements in the health department otherwise the paramedics would discontinue cooperating with it.
Speakers demanded of the government to take the concrete steps for bringing reforms in the medical faculty in order to ensure imparting of quality training to the employees, medical staff and facilitate the patients.
The paramedics lamented that some people in the faculty had started violating the rules by running their own paramedical institutions and giving priority to the examination duties instead of serving the patients.
