Docs protest against NMC


Docs protest against NMC

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, August 8

To protest against the National Medical Commission (NMC) Bill, the Punjab Civil Medical Services Association today wore black badges.

Dr Gagandeep Singh, president of the association, said the use of bridge course was a stop-gap measure to improve rural healthcare by merely increasing the number of health workers in the rural areas without any increase in the quality of services.

The association said the deregulation of both the fee structure and the “exit test” will allow private colleges provide sub-standard education. The association said it would make a front with like-minded associations and launch an agitation soon. They called the NMC "anti-poor and anti-students". The provision of bridge course in the NMC bill would jeopardise the health system in the country by promoting quackery, they said.
