Do no harm

Newspost

Private clinics that are set up in every nook and corner should be regulated by the authorities concerned in an effective manner. Many private doctors charge high fee from their clients, making it impossible for the poor and the middle-class to get treatment at affordable rates. Many doctors that are appointed at government hospitals also run private clinics after their duty hours. These doctors refer patients who come to government hospitals to their clinics in an attempt to make extra money.

This is an unethical practice which should be stopped on an urgent basis. Provision of healthcare is the basic duty of the government. However, when the authorities fail to provide relief to the people, profiteers make the most out of the situation. It is hoped that the authorities will look into the matter and take relevant steps to put an end to the exploitation of the people in hands of a few profiteers.
