sachin nayak started this petition to Dr. Harshvardhan, Union Minister for Health & Family Welfare, Govt of India (Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India)

In medical profession, diagnosis plays a more important role than treatment, as the right treatment is always decided based on the right diagnosis. With medical science advancing more and more and getting more and more mechanised and high tech, Diagnostic Centers are mushrooming everywhere, and with that there is a rat race amongst these diagnostic centers to be the leading ones and the patients have been reduced to "customers" .. 

Like many of you, I too keep getting these annoying messages from Diagnostic Centers and even Hospitals, announcing various "offers" , like how the Malls and other Commercial establishments offer " Discount sales". The" Buy one Get one day Free" type offers !! It's just so disgusting !! What have these Diagnostic Centers and Hospitals reduced us to?? A recent message from a leading one said " Bring 5 patients and get 80% discount " or something like that !.. DISGUSTING !!

If i begin to say " Medical profession is meant to be a Service to humankind, a Noble duty that only the most qualified will offer to the ailing mass, and a Medical practitioner is next only to God ( "Vaidyo Naraayano Hari") " I will find myself scoffed at or ridiculed or being relegated to a bygone era. Of course, everyone needs money to survive, and Medical equipments and Technology being so advanced, are expensive to maintain..But This?? Will you reduce your Patients to mere customers?? The sicker a patient the better for you that you can squeeze more money out of him, and also hope that his family and friends are also sick and ailing so that you can attract them all by offering an " Attractive Package"?


It's time we said " ENOUGH IS ENOUGH !!"

This petition is to request the Governemnt and authorities to bring in legislations and laws to prevent these Diagnostic Centers and Medical establishments from becoming "profit centers " and to regulate the costs to make the facilities available to every strata of society. 


Please join me in signing this petition and let us try to bring an end to the "Menace" .. !
