Private Hospitals employing Government Doctors will face Action: UP Govt

Lucknow: Taking cognizance of the growing menace of private practice by government doctors despite them taking benefit of the Non-Practicing Allowance, the UP government has recently imposed a fresh ban on the private practice of such doctors

DNA reports that a fresh Government order( GO) was passed in this regard by the health department threatening that the licences of doctors indulging in private practice would be immediately cancelled that the government would move to realise the NPA from them. An additional twist comes in the form that the government is also going to take action against nursing homes, private clinics as well as hospitals that are taking service of such government doctors. 

Medical practitioners involved in government practice are not allowed to indulge in private practice if they are taking the benefit of NPA from the government. However, noticing that despite this, many medical practitioners are still getting involved in private practice, the Yogi government has announced action against them as well as those who employ them

The state government has circulated the order the various district magistrates and has also decided to create awareness among people by putting hoardings at public places and government hospitals. “We are seeking support from the general public also to inform the authorities about those government doctors doing private practices,” Principal Secretary, Medical Health Prashant Trivedi told DNA.

  1. Kam se kam doctor jyada mareej to dekh rahe the. Duty ke baad pvt kar rahe hain to kisi ka ilaz hi to kar rahe hain. Jab govt salary se uska ghar nahi chal raha to kahin aur mehnat karne ka haq kyun maar rahe ho uska. 8 hrs daily duty ke baad apna aram taak pe rakh ke vo kaam kar raha hai to bhi govt ko problem hai. Non practicing allowance mat do na use. NPA ko compulsary na karke optional kar do. Har koi karta hai jarurat pura karne ke liye extra kaam to doctors kyon nahi kar sakte. Pvt hospital ko doctor milte nahi itni kami hai doctors ki . Tabhi vo govt ko free time me hire karte hain and koi kisi ko force nahi karta ki pvt me dikhao. Jise govt hospital me dokhana hai vo vahan dikha sakta hai. Patient ko bhi to fayda hai agar doctor jyada kaam karenge to.

  2. These are very good steps . Doctors working in Govt should be banned private practice through ought the country . Nursing homes allowing working by the Govt employees should be dealt with firmly .
