The Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) has ordered the closure of all unregistered clinics in the country within the next 72 hours.

A notice was issued on Thursday in this regard following a virtual conference regarding supervision and monitoring of private hospitals and clinics.

The local administration and law enforcement agencies will carry out drives to close down these unregistered healthcare organisations, the notice said.

The meeting also decided to give a deadline to renew their license. If the hospitals, clinic and diagnostic centers fail to renew their licenses within the deadline then their operation will be suspended.

The meeting also decided that harsh action including revoking the licenses will be taken against hospitals and clinics if they allow other people to stay at the operation theaters other than registered physicians.

Besides, no clinic, private hospital and diagnostics center will be allowed to run their activities until they get a license.
