LAHORE - The provincial Health Department, upon approval of the Chief Minister, has transferred Prof. Dr. Musaddiq Ahmad Khan, Principal Rawalpindi Medical College (RMC) and directed him to report the Health Department. Prof Dr. Muhammad Afzal Farooqi, Professor of Urology has been notified to look after the charge of Principal RMC till further orders. The spokesman of the Department said the reasons for this change were attributed primarily to gross negligence, rampant fraudulent practices in the RMC and the Allied Hospitals as well as weaknesses in managerial practices and service delivery. In particular, the issues related to bogus and illegal appointments and regularisation of the MOs/WMOs and corruption in the utilisation of Pakistan Bait-ul-Maal funds have also been indicated as major reasons for this change. The Health Department intends to take such corrective action where so ever required, the spokesman added.
