PESHAWAR: The largest medical institute in the province, Lady Reading Hospital has decided to vacate male doctors’ hostels.
Further details say, all House Officers, Medical Officers and Trainee Medical Officers have been directed to vacate the hostel rooms in a month’s time.
Since the hospital has more female staff as compared to male, the rooms will be given to the female staff instead. MOs, TMOs and House Officers will take over the residence.
The Hospital administration earlier sent postage to all the doctors in the hospital.
The board has decided to vacate the rooms, confirmed the Hospital’s spokesman.
Doctor organizations mobilized and began protesting on the evacuation of the hostel rooms. Doctors, especially from remote districts who were residing in hostels refuse to accept the decision made by the board.
However, the hospital administration has planned to provide for them.
