Doctors to be appointed directly in Karnataka- Health Minister Sriramulu

Mysuru, Jan 23 (UNI) Concerned about doctors' shortage in the state hospitals, Health minister Sriramulu on Thursday said that the doctors to the hospitals will be appointed directly very soon.
Speaking after inaugurating the district hospital here, he said that earlier the doctors appointment was done through Kerala Public Service Commission (KPSC), but now the cabinet has decided to appoint them directly.

He said that the priority will be given to backward districts like Chamarajanagar where doctors' staff is in high demand, he added.
Anganawadi workers have been a helping hand in reaching the government programmes and polices and assured that the health department saving funds would be distributed to them, he added.
He noted that in the government hospitals 24x7 canteen facilities and rest rooms for the patients, care takers will be taken up soon.
The government has sanctioned Rs 15 crores for the testing of pregnancy cancer in the hospitals besides another Rs 15 crore for the blood banks.
The government had sanctioned Rs 80 crores in order to treat the sports persons in the Sanjay Gandhi hospital and it has been upgrading various hospitals to make sure that govt hospitals have more facilities than the private ones, he added.
