Telangana Vaidya Vidhan Parishad gets 919 specialist doctors

Vishwas News

Hyderabad, July 7:In a major exercise aimed at addressing the acute shortage of specialist doctors and provide high-end quality care in State-run health institutions in districts, authorities have concluded recruitment of 919 specialist doctors for Telangana Vaidya Vidhan Parishad (TVVP).
In the mean time, ground is also being prepared for the recruitment of nearly 3,000 nurses. For long, given the shortage of specialist doctors, the State-run health care institutions in districts have struggled to provide quality healthcare for critical patients and resulting in tertiary care getting highly centralised in Hyderabad. While State-run tertiary care facilities in Hyderabad remain packed to the brim with patients, the secondary health institutions in the districts did not have the patient-inflow and even doctors.
However, the sustained efforts of the health authorities appears set to correct this imbalance. For the first time in the history of medical services in government hospitals, health authorities here have just concluded the massive exercise of recruiting 911 specialist doctors for the TVVP.
This means, close to 159 secondary health institutions of TVVP, will soon be able to offer speciality care in the districts. Supplementing this move will be the recruitment of nearly 3,000 nurses for TVVP institutions in the next few months by Telangana State Public Service Commission (TSPSC).
In the past, before bifurcation, there have been several failed attempts at recruiting doctors for State-run secondary health institutions under Vaidya Vidhan Parishad. But due to various reasons, including court cases and lack of proper remuneration, authorities had failed to attract talented senior doctors.
This is for the first time that authorities had managed to convince specialist doctors to join TVVP institutions. Moreover, after a period of two decades, the health authorities here had managed to create 4,547 posts for a host of cadres for health institutions falling under TVVP.
"I thank Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao for making this possible and for a specific focus towards healthcare services in a big way in the State. We are hoping to complete the recruitment of nurses also at the earliest," says Health Minister Dr. C Laxma Reddy.
It was in April that the health authorities had invited experienced doctors i.e. Civil Assistant Surgeons to work in Area Hospitals, District Hospitals and Community Health Centres that fall under the jurisdiction of TVVP. The typical salary for CAS of Assistant Professor cadre in a TVVP health institution has been set at a gross of Rs 80,000 per month. In fact, to allow senior doctors to focus on their work and not get caught-up in other duties, authorities are under the process of recruiting ancillary non-clinical staff in addition to nurses.
