AIFGDA requests Nadda to review medical policies


Indore : A delegation of ‘All India Federation of Government Doctors Association’ (AIFGDA) submitted a memorandum to Union health minister JP Nadda requesting him to take steps for the welfare of doctors as some of the recent policies of Union government have created trouble for medical fraternity. The delegation met the union health minister in New Delhi recently.

The delegation comprising of senior vice president Dr Madhav Hasani has appealed to the minister to review the policies related to pay, recruitment and contracts of government doctors as the department is facing shortage of doctors due to faulty policies which discourage the new generation of doctors.

“Nadda has given us an assurance to call a meeting to discuss the problems of doctors and to take appropriate steps. We have also informed the minister on the need to update the syllabus of medical students with the time,” Dr Hasani added.
