ISLAMABAD Taking strict notice of doctors negligence regarding provision of initial treatment to Huma Wasim, the wife of former cricket captain Wasim Akram, National Assembly Standing Committee on Health has directed Pakistan Medial and Dental Council (PMDC) to cancel practice licences of all responsible doctors. The decision was taken in a meeting of National Assembly Standing Committee on Health held here on Thursday. The meeting discussed the death case of Huma Wasim Akram besides those of PML-N MNA Faiz Muhmmad Khan and a three-year old girl Imanae Malik-all of them died due to the alleged negligence of doctors. Dr Nadeem Ehsan presided over the meeting. Wasim Akram informed the committee that doctors of National Hospital Lahore were responsible for the death of his wife. The committee unanimously agreed that death was caused due to the gross and criminal negligence and lack of professionalism on part of the doctors of the National Hospital and Doctors Hospital. The committee directed the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) to suspend practice licences and registration of all responsible doctors of both hospitals and another through inquiry should be conducted. Wasim informed the committee that the hospital administration charged $200,000 for treatment as a commission to send Huma Singapore whereas India allowed her entry without visa and charged nothing for her treatment. Earlier, Health Minister Ijaz Hussain Jakhrani briefed the committee that probe into the death of Huma Wasim had been completed which revealed the negligence of the doctors. The standing committee also formed a sub-committee for further probe. Federal Health Minister has directed the PMDC to cancel licence of these doctors. It is to be mentioned here that a three-member committee was constituted on the direction of Prime Minister to probe into the death causes of Wasim Akrams wife Huma. A month ago, Huma died at a hospital in Chennai following multiple organ failure. According to the findings the main reason behind Huma Akrams death was widespread blood fungal infection, which blocked her veins and blood circulation was halted. According to the report initial treatment that was provided in a private hospital of Lahore failed to diagnose it, which proved fatal and caused her death. Expressing concerns over the death of MNA Faiz Muhmmad Khan the committee expressed concerns over inadequate treatment facilities at PIMS due to weak administration and negligence on part of Executive Director. On recommendation of the committee Health Minister Aijaz Hussain Jackhrani suspended the acting ED PIMS Dr Altaf Hussain and handed over the charge to the Dr Ghazala Mahmood.
