Chouhan seeks private cooperation in providing quality health service to people

BHOPAL: Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that Madhya Pradesh government is committed to provide quality health services to people. Unprecedented improvement can be brought about in health services with the cooperation of private sector, he added.

He said that the ideal situation would be that the state’s people get quality specialist facilities in the state itself. There is no bar on opening private nursing homes and hospitals in residential areas, but complete management of bio-medical waste is mandatory.

Chouhan was addressing concluding function of 12th state-level convention of MP Nursing Homes Association here today. The convention was convened to contemplate on delivery of less expensive and quality health service.

Chouhan urged the Nursing Homes Association to constitute a committee and give suggestions to the state government within a month as to which rules can be simplified to ensure smooth functioning of nursing homes. He urged Directors of private nursing homes and hospitals to motivate new generation of doctors to give services in villages and create conducive atmosphere for this.

Chouhan said that maternity and infant mortality rate can be brought down by partnering with health institutions working in private sector. Besides, they can also effectively partner in discouragement of sex determination tests, give fillip to Beti Bachao Abhiyan and other health security-related campaigns like Mamta Abhiyan.

Chouhan said that private medical colleges should be opened in view of shortage of doctors, but they will have to maintain their reputation. Similarly, private nursing homes will also have to meet all ethical norms honestly. The state government will remove hurdles in establishment and running of private nursing homes and hospitals.
