Wednesday, April 5, 2017

Lucknow: Inspector general of medical and health services has directed chief medical officers (CMOs) to set up a committee in each district and identify the government doctors who are also practising in their own or other private nursing homes despite a ban on private practice by government doctors.

The committee, to be headed by the CMO, should take action against the accused doctors according to prescribed rules. The committee should also cancel the licence of nursing homes which have employed medical officers, the IG said in a letter to all CMOs and chief medical superintendents.
