RAWALPINDI: More than 200 House Officers of allied hospitals will face removal from their house jobs in the aftermath of restriction imposed on graduates of private medical colleges.

Details said, provincial government has imposed the restriction on graduate doctors of private medical college that they will be not hired for house job in government hospitals.

This decision has raised the threat of shortage of doctors performing duties in the wards of allied hospitals, while hospital administration has become confused on the removal of house officers.

Sources said, these house officers from private medical colleges are performing their duties on honorary basis in all departments of hospitals without any scholarship or facility.

Patients admitted in the wards of hospitals are more dependent on the house officers for treatment as compare to Medical Officers (MOs). Removal of these young graduates will also increase the difficulties for patients.

Doctors, patients and different public circles have expressed their concerns on this decision of Punjab government and have demanded from Chief Minister (CM) Punjab to reverse this decision.
