LAHORE Senior Advisor to Chief Minister Punjab, Sardar Zulfiqar Ali Khan Khosa has said Pakistan Medical Association members has given a proof of human-friendly by looking after the patients in emergency wards during recent strike of young doctors and government greatly valued their humanitarian spirit, and considers PMA the representative organisation of responsible doctors. He expressed these views during a meeting with a delegation led by President PMA Dr Abdur Rasheed Malik. Minister Food Ch Abdul Ghafoor, Chief Secretary Punjab Nasir Mahmood Khosa, IG Police Punjab Javed Iqbal, Secretary Health Fawad Hassan Fawad, MPAs Dr Saeed Elahi and Dr Asad Ashraf, MNA Sardar Ayaz Sadiq and Secretary Information Mohyuddin Wani were also present on the occasion. Khosa said the PMA leadership was mature and aware of the importance of the sacred medical profession. Despite clear-cut assurance by the government for resolving problems of the young doctors, the latter did not demonstrate any responsible attitude. In such a situation, the PMA members have restored the image of medical profession by looking after the patients, he said, adding that the Punjab government would consult PMA with regard to planning and policy making of the Health Department and would only hold dialogue with the PMA representatives regarding demands of doctors. He assured that government would not take any action against doctors. However, strict legal action will be taken against the mischievous elements, he vowed. On this occasion, the PMA representatives said they were bound to treat the patients under the PMA constitution and no one could even think of closure of emergency ward under this constitution. The PMA members do not want to get their salaries enhanced at the cost of human lives, they said, while demanding issuance of notification of those demands the proceedings of which had been completed. The PMA members further requested that they be given a time for two days so that they could convince the doctors of Young Doctors Association to resume their duties. Another delegation of Paramedics Association, led by Ch Ameer Ahmed, also met Khosa. The delegation presented their demands with regard to service structure, upon which, Secretary Health informed that approval to the service structure of paramedics had already been granted and their other demands would be fulfilled very soon.
