Bhopal, Sept 30 (ILNS) The Madhya Pradesh High Court recently disposed of a PIL seeking directions to the respondent authorities to post doctors of various specializations in District Hospital, Umaria and keep all the posts filled.

The PIL has been filed by the petitioners Shambhulal Khattar and Gopal Kumar Vaswani. The grievance of the petitioners is that there are 49 posts of various doctors pertaining to various specialities in the District Hospital Umaria. Only 16 doctors were posted in the District Umaria and the hospital, which needed 49 doctors, was functioning with the skeletal infrastructure of 16 doctors only to cater for the health needs of the general public.

By the recent order dated August 31, 2021, four doctors pertaining to the field of Radiology, Anesthesia, Pediatric and General Surgery have been transferred to various hospitals of other Districts.
