Shortage of 7,348 doctors in govt hospitals in Uttar Pradesh: Minister

Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh government admitted on Tuesday in the state Assembly that there is a shortage of 7,348 doctors in the government hospitals though during the BJP regime, of around one-and-a-half year, they have recruited 3,253 doctors through different modes.

Replying to a question of SP member Manoj Kumar Paras during Question Hour, State Minister for Rural Development Mahendra Singh said there are 841 specialist doctors which have been appointed by this government.

Claiming that there is no shortage of medicines in the government hospitals, the Minister said the retirement age of the doctors has been increased from 60 to 62 years, while retired specialist doctors were engaged on contract basis. He said there are 18,382 posts of doctors in the state.

However, the SP member alleged that in most of the government hospitals in the state, the doctors force the patient to go to the private nursing home, which is very unfortunate.

  1. They all know why doctor are not joining ?
    Insufficient drugs and forcing doctors to treat indian public as guniepig with limited facilities
    One day will come when public will know whole truth and will raise their voice against govt aur girager inloogoon kou maaraigee

  2. Govt should think and find out reasons why Drs r not joining govt services and try to change pattern sothat doctors come forward to join govt services like in other countries. Only blaming drs that they don’t join govt service is not solution!
