Health, NHM, FDA employees to be under civil surgeon, says Vij
CHANDIGARH: Haryana health minister Anil Vij on Monday said that all employees and officials of the health department, National Health Mission (NHM), AIDS control society and Food and Drugs authority (FDA), employed in the districts, would now function under the control of the civil surgeon.
Vij said that during the surprise inspections conducted in various hospitals, it was found that there was no coordination among the staff of the health department, NHM, AIDS control society and the FDA.
It was found that while there was rush in one section, the staff in the other sat idle. Due to the mismanagement and lack of coordination between different components of the health department, the patients faced difficulties, he said.
Besides controlling all officials and employees, the civil surgeon would also release their salaries. He would also be their immediate supervisory authority and responsible for proper utilisation of the staff, the health minister said.
