Private health sector credibility at stake: JP Nadda

New Delhi: Union Health Minister JP Nadda said the image of the private healthcare sector is at stake and that it should adopt a self-regulatory system to improve their credibility.

“Private healthcare sector’s image is on a stake. Their credibility has to be seen and they should go for a self-regulatory system. A common man’s aspiration should also be taken care,” Nadda said while addressing 14th India Health Summit here.

He added that the issue has to be resolved by improving communication within the organizations.

“We have to have a regulatory mechanism. I have written letters to all the chief ministers to look into the matter,” Nadda further said.

The 14th India Health Summit was organized by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII).

Medical Dialogues team had earlier reported that union health minister J P Nadda urged the states to implement the Clinical Establishment Act for regulation of private healthcare institutions, in the backdrop of cases of alleged medical negligence and overcharging by private hospitals.

The Clinical Establishments Act has been enacted by the Centre to provide for registration and regulation of all clinical establishments in the country with a view to prescribing the minimum standards of facilities and services provided by them.

    He should talk about the 1% of GDP spent on healthcare in India. If he asked himself the question about this meagre amount he might start to understand the situation better.

  2. Mr. Nadda should not equate private hospitals with corporate Hospitals, which are run by big busi-
    ness houses often with Govt. pampering

  3. Yes you are right

    The whole problem has started with privatisation of education.
    Let us have a Govt organised genuine NEET for everyone, a centrally monitored curriculum. A Govt supervised assessment system. A centrally organised exit exam. We must have Govt monitored recruitment and payment of the faculties. This will do away with the entire gamut of maladies.

  5. What about your credibility of govt and health ministers in eliminating quackery and ILEGAL selling of allopathic medicines all over India.

    State of even Private Medical Colleges is equally pathetic. Someone or the other (viz. MCI, Courts & Health Ministry etc.) always bails out errant Private Medical Colleges which sadly lack essentials to train & produce competant doctors.
