Cracking its whip against government medical officers for remaining absent from official work deliberately, the state directorate of health services has asked such errant medicos to resume services within a week or face action.
In a latest public notification, the directorate has observed that emergency services and general healthcare in government run hospitals have been disrupting due to non reporting of medical officers without prior intimation.
"The unauthorised absence of government medical officers amounts to professional misconduct as per Medical Council of India rules, and also is a serious wrongdoing as per Maharashtra civil services rules, liable to deterrent punishment," the notification reads.
The directorate has also warned errant medical officers that their names would be conveyed to Medical Council of India and Maharashtra Medical Council for cancellation of registration.
The latest orders from state directorate of health services have come in the backdrop of mounting complaints against conspicuous absence of government medical officers in health centres, especially those in rural areas.
