Health and Family Welfare Minister Balbir Singh Sidhu today said the government has come up with a proposal to recruit doctors directly instead of routing the selection process through the Punjab Public Service Commission.

Talking to reporters here after inaugurating the new building of the Dasuya maternity hospital, he said as the process of selection of doctors was taking time, the department had opted for direct recruitment through a test. "The recruitment of doctors and other medical staff will be done in about a month," he said, adding that a proposal in this regard would be tabled in the next Cabinet meeting.

The minister said the services of 7,000 personnel, including doctors and other medical staff who were due to retire, had been extended till September 30 as health staff were needed to fight the Covid-19 pandemic. "Now we have time till September 30 to make the new recruitment," he said.

Talking about the Dasuya facility, he said the long-standing demand of the locals had been fulfilled with the 20-bed maternity hospital being dedicated to the public. The minister said under the Mission Fateh, launched by Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh, people were supporting the awareness campaign for the elimination of Covid-19.
