Kathmandu: The government is preparing to increase the facilities of doctors working at the government hospitals so that they would not have to work in private health facilities, said Umesh Shrestha, Minister of State at the Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers.

“The government is taking initiatives for stopping the doctors working in government hospitals from working in private sector health facilities as far as possible by increasing their facilities and services,” the minister said on Tuesday. 

Stating that works were underway for constructing the municipality-level hospitals in all the 753 local levels throughout the country, Minister of State Shrestha suggested constructing the health facilities by preparing a proper plan. “Make a plan of what you are going to do in 100 days, in six months and in one year. The people should get the service,” he reiterated. RSS
