LAHORE:Pakistan Medical Association (PMA) Lahore, in an emergent meeting held under the chairmanship of Prof Dr Ashraf Nizami, expressed concern over the incompetence and indifferent attitude of the administration on the incidents in Children's Hospital Lahore and Sargodha Hospital.


Prof Dr Shahid Malik, Prof Dr Khalid Mehmood Khan, Dr Iram Shahzadi, Dr Wajid Ali, Dr Bushra Haq, Dr Riaz Zulqarnain Aslam, Dr M Sadiq, Dr Nader Khan and other members of the executive council and a large number of people participated.

PMA expressed solidarity with the medical professionals including doctors, nurses and the staff who have been targeted because of the worsening situation of hooliganism and law and order in hospitals. These incidences show that the local administration has completely failed in its duties. PMA Lahore demanded the CM and the two health ministers to conduct a transparent investigation into these two cases and punish those who are involved in the incident and also improve the security of the health institutions.
