Plight of doctors
In almost all BHUs the doctor’s house is very old, not renovated since long and devoid of all facilities where doctor cannot accommodate himself and his family. In such gruesome conditions doctors go to offer their services for the betterment of the people of rural area. Moreover, dispenser, LHV, nutritionist, watchman and even peon do not give ear to doctor’s orders. I request you for the sake of God to save doctors from unbearable humiliation. Following are some suggestions to ameliorate the general conditions of PRSP and PPHI.
Interview of a doctor must be conducted on the day when he visits DSU for appointment by any doctor, not by DSM. If possible, DSM must be a doctor not a bureaucrat because bureaucrats are bit arrogant in their dealings. Doctor should be given at least a house with all facilities, no matter how old it is. Monitoring Executive should be a doctor. DSM should be instructed to behave with doctors in an amicable style. There should not be any involvement of feuds in the matters of BHU. All the staff of BHU ought to be ordered to treat doctor nicely as most of the doctors are not locals. The doctor should be given authority to stop the salary of any staff member when he/she is not performing his/her duty diligently. Salary of doctor must be given on the 1st of every month.
Cook for doctor must be appointed in every BHU. More honestly, health department and these projects are given billions of rupees to facilitate doctors along with provision of medicines but health department officers and bureaucrats only line their pocket.
