Shortage of Specialists and Consultants in CGHS

Will the Minister of HEALTH AND FAMILY WELFARE be pleased to state:

(a) whether it is a fact that there is a shortage of Specialists and Consultants in CGHS;

(b) if so, the details thereof and the reasons therefor; and



(c) the steps taken or being taken to ensure adequate availability of Specialists and Consultants in CGHS?
 
ANSWER
THE MINISTER OF HEALTH AND FAMILY WELFARE (SHRI JAGAT PRAKASH NADDA)

(a) & (b): Yes. Details are at Annexed.

The recruitment of specialists is done at the level of Union Public Service Commission & Posting is done by Central Health Service. It has been noted that after appointment, very few specialists actually join the CGHS. Cases of taking voluntary retirement to join private institutions are also increasing. Some of the specialists also opt for joining other Government Institutions in the Teaching Cadre. These factors render the vacancy position more acute.

(c): In order to meet the requirement against the vacancies, the posts of Specialists /Consultants are filled on contract basis. Keeping in view the acute shortage, a proposal to engage private specialists on part time basis at dispensary level has also been approved.
