PMDC, PMA fear nursing council amended law may promote quackery . PM

Pakistan Medical and Dental Council PMDC has written a letter to the health secretary expressing its fear that it would promote quackery across the country . The Pakistan Medical Association PMA has also expressed concern over declaring nurses as practitioner .

The council has the view that this is a matter of serious concern whereas there is a serious shortage of nurses in the country and it is unanimously assumed by the council that all the nurses will start practicing as doctor which Pakistan can ill afford at this time .

A senior doctor requesting not to be named said nurses were part of paramedical staff which were not allowed to do independent practice as they had to implement instructions of qualified doctors . The senior doctor said chances of accidents in clinics would increase because of the decision and ultimately the health ministry would be blamed for it .

The NHS ministry spokesperson Sajid Shah said he was not aware of the issue at present and would look into it. However some sections in the amended Act are appreciable but it does not mean that nurses can be allowed to work in the nursing institutions and appointing them in Basic Pay Scale BPS is appreciable, he said.

Dr Ghafoor Shoro urged the NHS Ministry of National Health Services NHS to look into the issue as the present decision would be decided by the NHS ministry to look at it. The NHS Ministry said he is not aware and would be looking into it at present. The British National Health services NHS said SajID Shah said Sjid Shah was not concerned about the issue.

The National Health Service NHS said he would not be aware of it. He said he said he. was not necessarily aware of what happened to the issue and would not necessarily agree with the decision. It is not necessarily obliged to comment on the matter.
