Young Doctors Association (YDA) Punjab has rejected provincial government health reforms urged government to take all the stakeholders into confidence regarding the new health laws otherwise medics would launch a protest movement across the province.

According to detail, young doctors serving at public sectors hospitals in Punjab are planning to lodge a series of protests, a movement against health forms.

Young Doctors Association Punjab Chairman Dr. Shoaib Tarar, Dr. Qasim Awan and General Secretary Salman Hasheeb Ch have stated this while addressing a press conference here on Wednesday.

They viewed that provincial government health reforms law failed to achieve the required objectives. They alleged that PTI government is following the footsteps of previous governments as it was introducing MTI.

He said that it would affect both juniors and seniors alike and they would have to work on contract.

They stated that government was least bothered to bring any positive change in the hospitals.

He added that only hollow claims were made about improvement in the healthcare system.  “If government really wants to bring any positive change in the healthcare system, it should empower the relevant administration to take timely decisions for provision of quality medical treatment,” they added.
