Safdarjung docs to meet health secretary
A delegation of resident doctors from Safdarjung Hospital will meet Health Secretary BP Sharma on Tuesday to discuss the transfer of the hospital’s medical superintendent Rajpal.
“We will meet the Health Secretary today (on Tuesday) evening and urge him to cancel the transfer of Rajpal sir, who has done great works for the Safdarjung Hospital,” a senior resident doctor said.
He said the delegation had also sought an appointment with the Health Minister J P Nadda.
However, the meeting would be possible only if the appointment is fixed.
Rajpal has been replaced by A K Rai, a senior ENT surgeon of the Ram Manohar Lohia (RML) Hospital.
Following the development, resident doctors of the hospital had decided to go on an indefinite strike, which was later cancelled on Rajpal’s request.
