Political meddling in Pakistan hospitals angers doctors, staff as they threaten to resign

Islamabad: Following the resignations of three hospital managers of Pakistan's Khalifa Gulnawaz Hospital, medical consultants, young doctors and other allied staff on Sunday also threatened to observe a complete strike and tender collective resignations by demonstrating against the alleged  political interference in the three teaching hospitals, showing a dark side of the situation in which health workers are working in the country.

“We will have no other option but to take an appropriate step if the Board of Governors of Medical Teaching Institution did not ban the entry of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf workers into the hospitals within two days,” the leaders of doctors and allied staff told a meeting of All Health Employees Coordination Council here as quoted by The News International.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr Hakimzada, Khairullah Khan, Isra Alibaz and others told the newspaper that three hospital managers had already resigned in the prevailing emergency situation due to political interference by the PTI workers, particularly one Shabniaz.

Protesting against the troubles they are facing,  the doctors, paramedics and other staff presented a charter of demands to the BOG chairperson and urged the authorities to ban the entry of PTI workers into the hospitals and stop political interference in official work.
