West Bengal to increase seats in medical colleges by 700

Jun 14, 2011 - 4:03:03 PM
'We will increase 3,000 beds across various hospitals in the state within this infrastructure through various programmes. We have decided that seven hospitals situated in various districts of West Bengal will be turned into district hospitals and this process will increase 700 beds.

 
[RxPG] West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Monday said a three-phase developmental system will be taken up to improve the state's ailing health services sector.

'We have to go through three systems for health service development. A three-phase developmental system will be taken up to improve the heath infrastructure and service.

'First, how to develop within this infrastructure. Second phase will be short-term planning, what we can do in one year to three-four years, and another is long-term vision plan what we can do in 10 years,' Banerjee said while addressing an event of state health officials and doctors.

'While selecting doctors and nurses for the hospitals, the local boys and girls... should be given preference so that he or she can concentrate fully in his work,' she added.

Banerjee said the senior health officials should spend time in field work rather than just sitting in their offices.

'The senior health officials should not work by sitting in cabins. The state-level health officials should go to the district-level, the district-level health officials should go to the block-level and sub-divisional levels and take report of everything,' said Banerjee.

The chief minister asserted that coordination between health officials and the government was necessary for the implementation of the government policies.

Banerjee also announced that 3,000 hospital beds will be added in the state.

'We will increase 3,000 beds across various hospitals in the state within this infrastructure through various programmes. We have decided that seven hospitals situated in various districts of West Bengal will be turned into district hospitals and this process will increase 700 beds.

'We are also conducting a inspection and after this inspection is over, we are hopeful of increasing 700 seats in medical colleges,' she said.
