M.L.A. DR R,M,D.AGRAWAL TALKS TO THE HEALTH-EDUCATION MINISTER
GORAKHPUR The medical college administration and the doctors are shocked by the decision of the transfer of the j.e specialist doctors who were attached to the medical college on deputation.Eight out of thirteen doctors on deputation were transferred after the court ordered the same. The doctors were attached with the v.e. programme and were considered to be the specialists.This would certainly increase the pressure in the coming days as the j.e patients will start reaching from different parts of the state,Bihar and Nepal. Earlier 23 PMS doctors were attached to the medical college when the Je epidemic was at its peak and the recognition of the medical college was about to be cancelled .The court then ordered that the J.E. specialist doctors near to retirement should be given an extention to their services .A lso the doctors and the specialists attached to the V.E. Programme should not be transferred.
The sources say that five out of the eight transferred were send to their previous places whereas three have been ordered to be attached with different hospitals as J.E.specialists.On the other hand 38 posts of doctors are lying vacant and the services will be more effected after the transfer of the doctors.
The official sources say that the no. of J.E. patients admitted at the medical college from the 1 st of July till date is 250 out of which 65 have died while being treated.About one or two patents are being admitted daily for the past two weeks. The numbers are expected to rise in the coming days.
