Doctors' fraternity united against Max license cancellation

NEW DELHI: The Delhi government's decision to cancel the licence of a Max hospital's unit in the Capital has united hospital chains, which accused authorities of targeting the private sector that they said is bridging the wide gap in healthcare services due to poor investment in public facilities.
On December 8, 2017, Delhi health minister Satyendra Jain cancelled the licence of Max Shalimar Bagh after a premature baby was wrongly declared dead.
"My personal belief is, this is a wrong move. Instead of giving enough notice, they just cancelled the licence," said a senior official at private health care.
"What about patients who have to go for emergency services? We are holding the private sector so much accountable countable, why are the same standards not applied for the public sector?" the official added.
"We do not have any problem with private hospitals but we cannot tolerate criminal negligence," Jain had said.
