Rid the Medical system of Endemic corruption.
This petition had 5 supporters
I want to draw attention to following ills plaguing medical industry:
1. Control the cost of diagnostic tests . It is widely known that a large part of the cost of diagnostic test is passed on to doctor ordering test. It is a scam which is being pulled on to citizens. Labs must declare that they are not indulging in this unethical practice. Strict punishment should be imposed on anyone found doing this.
2. Kickbacks should not be provided by drug companies to Doctors who order their brand of medicine. Role of medical representative should come under government scanner.
3. Large private hospitals indulge in Targets system for Doctors. This exposes unsuspecting patients to unnecessary sugeries and expenses. It also increases suffering. Govt should make strict laws banning this practice.
4. Govt should invest in opening good quality hospitals on the lines of AIMMS and PGIs in every large city so that quality medical treatment can be provided at reasonable cost.
