Health and Family Welfare Minister Zahid Maleque on Monday attended the joining ceremony of newly-appointed physicians of the 37th BCS (Health) cadre service, asking them to get tuned to positive mindset in performing their duties, reports BSS.

“I want to see your works. You will take forward the nation through proper services. I believe whole-heartedly that you will bear a positive outlook in performing your professional duties,” he told as the chief guest at the ceremony held at Bangladesh Medical Association (BMA) auditorium in the city.

Zahid said the government has taken a plan to post at least 4 doctors each in all the upazilas under six divisions excepting Dhaka and Chattogram.

The minister urged doctors and other concerned to perform their duties with utmost sincerity and honesty to reach healthcare at the doorsteps of rural and marginal people.

Rural people are dependent on public hospitals for emergency health problems and the present government is committed to reaching healthcare services to them, he said.

“I am very much positive towards fulfilling the emergency needs on priority basis. All the logical requirements will be fulfilled in phases,” he said assuring that required funds would be allocated for further improvement.
