‘Non-qualified’ doc’s posting protested

VEHARI -People protested against the posting of a “non-qualified doctor” at the District Headquarters Hospital of Vehari as urologist due to his political influence, and demanded their immediate removal as per the rules.
The People demonstrated against Dr Yusuf Shahzad, and alleged that he was working as urologist but he was not a qualified one.
Dr Yusuf, who graduated in 2003 and adopted the field of MD medicines, had not studied surgery as a special subject. He did his job in General Hospital Lahore in medicine department from 2006 till 2013. Now, he is working in DHQ Hospital as a urologist against the rules. He attends patients of urology and refers them to private hospitals or Nishatar Hospital Multan without any treatment. Sources said that he was politically appointed in the department.
EDO Health Dr Afzal Basher and MS Dr Dharrala have completely ignored the issue after receiving the political dictations, sources alleged. The masses requested to DCO Ali Akbar to transfer Dr Yusuf to medicine department instead of urology department after.
