Re: Wake up Doctors!
I saw your string ""Wake up Doctors"" today.
You pointed out a serious problem for doctors in our society in a very mild way.
The response to this problem by our colleagues is very surprising. Either they are not practicing or they are talking from some other planet…..
Honestly speaking, this is the biggest issue due to which I decided to leave Pakistan.
Our politicians, bureaucracy, media and public all are participating in disgracing this profession.
Politicians, especially in Punjab, have no authority on other departments. They find it the weakest community to say something against doctors to make themselves popular among public.
Bureaucrats take the revenge of their depression which they suffer after F.Sc. Not being on merit for medical and engineering. They always deprive doctors from their basic rights which they being a Govt. Servant. They do not let the doctors’ breath comfortably while in Govt. Job.
Public demands that doctors should be ready 24 hours, free of cost! He should have no time to eat drink rest and family. If something wrong happens to the patient, the doctor is responsible.
Our media has became the biggest JUDGE and PROSECUTOR on any issue.
Being MASIHA is a good thing but living in fool’s paradise is something different.
NO WHERE IN THE WORLD A DOCTOR IS CHARGED WITHOUT INVESTIGATION AND PROVING NEGLIGENCE EXCEPT IN PAKISTAN.
I my view, Pakistan is the worst place to practice medicine in present situation.

Re: Wake up Doctors!
You are right there has been an increase in the threats for doctors. Especially those doctors and nurses that go to vaccinate kids against Polio. It’s important for the government to educate people about the advantages of getting vaccinated. Most people that work in medical field are at risk of being shot at. Doctors and professors both should be given security by the government.
