Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said, "When we`re appointing doctors in upazilas, many of them don`t want to stay at their workplace. Rather they live in Dhaka somehow by managing it. If the doctors intend to stay in Dhaka in this way they don`t need to do government job."
"They could earn huge amount of money by doing private practice in the capital. So it`s better for them to go home after resign from their job ... will give fresh appointments in their place," the Prime Minister added.
Sheikh Hasina said this while addressing a function on the occasion of handing over keys of ambulances to seven government hospitals and establishments at her office on Thursday morning.
Prime Minister also directed authorities concerned to further improve standard of education in the medical colleges to create quality physicians in the country.
She said the government has set up a huge number of medical colleges in the country. "We`ve already given permission to establish medical colleges in five cantonments and such colleges will be set up in other cantonment gradually," the Prime Minister added.
Sheikh Hasina said her government has set up Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University in Dhaka, while two new medical universities - one in Chittagong and another in Rajshahi - are also being established for ensuring higher education for medical students and further improving healthcare services.
The prime minister said the authorities will have to monitor that what type of treatment is being provided from these medical colleges. She said "They`ll have to look into whether `patient-killing doctors` or `patient-saving doctors` are being created in these medical colleges.”
Health Minister Mohammad Nasim and State Minister for Health Zahid Maleque Swapan also spoke on the occasion.
