Punjab lifts ban on ad hoc appointments of doctors


The Punjab government on Tuesday allowed the health department for ad hoc appointment of doctors and paramedics to meet the acute shortage of health officials in the public health facilities across the province.

Punjab Chief Minister Chaudhry Parvez Elahi lifted the ban on ad-hoc appointments of doctors and nurses after the health departments forwarded a summary in this regard.

According to the notification, both the health departments – Specialized Healthcare and Primary Health – are allowed to fill the vacant posts of doctors and paramedics on an ad-hoc basis.

A day earlier, the Punjab government decided to add more hospitals to the panel for the provision of standard health treatment to the people having Sehat Insaf Cards.
