Recently at the 15th annual celebration of Himachal Maha Sabha union health minister JP Nadda has welcomed the idea of reemploying retired doctors in the central hospitals. This time their employment can be considered on a contractual basis, as stated by Nadda.
Nadda is also reported to have stated AIIMS as one such option for reemployment as part of this new development. This initiative by the centre gives an opportunity for many doctors including a number of top doctors, originally from Himachal to avail this offer. Most of these doctors were employed with or now have retired from top hospitals in Chandigarh region, and the rest of Himachal.
“After their retirement, if they want to come, we are planning to bring them for service on contract basis in central hospitals, including AIIMS,” Nadda said while speaking here as chief guest at the 15th annual celebration of Himachal Maha Sabha, a body of people from Himachal Pradesh living in Chandigarh, as reported by the Jagran Post
“If I get the opportunity in future, I want to take full benefit of their expertise in Himachal Pradesh,” he told the gathering.
He also said the new AIIMS which are being set up at different places across the country, sarais (resting places) will be set up in PPP mode for the benefit of attendants of patients who find difficulty in searching for accommodation.
