Supreme Court refuses to pass order on plea seeking security
The Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to pass orders on a plea seeking to provide security to doctors in government hospitals. The court directed the matter to be listed before an appropriate bench in July, after the summer vacations, ANI reported.

The bench said that the matter of protection of doctors is serious and needs consideration, but is not urgent any more, Bar and Bench reported. The Indian Medical Association had filed an intervention application in support of the petitioner, Alakh Alok Srivastava, in the case.

“We agreed to hear the plea today as there was a strike by doctors and medical fraternity in West Bengal and other states,” the bench of Justices Deepak Gupta and Surya Kant said according to PTI. “The strike has been called off and there appears no urgency to hear the petition. List before an appropriate bench.”

The Supreme Court said it has to take a “holistic view” of the situation, not merely from the viewpoint of doctors. “We can’t protect doctors at the cost of other citizens,” it said. “We have to look at the larger picture. We are not against the protection given to doctors.”

Hi everyone Regards: Drs in India Greetings of the day. As regards self respect to our country I want you to stop 🛑 all doctors registered in India to work in any foreign country. Work for poor in India. No Passport issued unless emergency. Registration fees and CME and other services should be made online and avoid wastage of time of working doctors. A website dedicated should allow for entry of data of every doctor Registered in India with required CPD. Every licensed doctor need not take license to start a Hospital or Practices. Government should provide full financial support by Medicare with full subsidy of funds to treat patients and doctors income substantially. Doctors should be provided with self defence instruments uat all times. They self defend their own life with instruments or any defence like police and be fully licensed to enact. Doctors should be fully Empowered to do their job fully without fear. Counselling be given by a caring Medical Council where necessary to keep doctors happy. Only standard hours of work be allowed for doctors for doctoring in order to avoid mistakes. Medical councils are subservient to Doctors. And should be available to counselling them. Only non medical members can execute this as doctors have egos going on on and are punitive and have joined with pharmaceutical and businessmen and have proven corrupt under pololitical pressure. Doctors completing MBBS be given Title as MD for all existing doctors to boost their morale. All arbitrary conflicts of MD MS DIPLOMAS DNBS need not be displayed but training certificate can be added for teaching in AIIMS etc. Only teaching grades or Specialist grades be made irrespective qualifications and posted according to experience of effiency. Counselling be taken to train doctors and healthcare professionals to treat in humane way. No foreign training allowed instead will learn within India. Law should be rewritten whether NMC OR MCI IMMEDIATELY.... Read more
