LAHORE – Young Doctors Association has demanded the government to fill 47 vacant seats of consultants at Children’s Hospital to ensure provision of healthcare facilities to minors. The vacant seats include 3 Associate Professors, 11 Assistant Professor and 33 Senior Registrars.

In a statement issued here on Sunday, YDA office bearers said that these seats were lying vacant for the last couple of months due to lack of interest of the government. They said that building new hospitals and installation of sophisticated equipment would be of no use without filling vacant posts of senior doctors.
