Indian Medical Association writes to governor to stall healthcare bill
The Indian Medical Association (IMA) has written to the governor of Bengal seeking a debate and deliberation on the proposed Clinical Establishment ((Registration, Regulation and Transparency) Bill 2017 before it is passed.
Raising objections to several provisions in the bill, which, it believes are loaded against doctors and "unfairly" holds them accountable for offences often not committed by them, the national body of doctors has also questioned the exclusion of the government hospitals from the purview of the bill.
IMA office-bearers from across the country on Saturday met in Delhi to discuss the bill, which came into being following accident victim Sanjay Roy's death at SSKM Hospital after he was shifted there from Apollo (and not at Apollo as erroneously mentioned in some early copies of The Times of India on Saturday morning).
