Minister Health takes notice of illegal nursing training centres


KARACHI: Provincial Minister for Health Jam Mehtab Hussain Dahar on Wednesday took a serious notice of illegal and unauthorised nursing training centres and sale of fake medicines.

He issued these directives while presiding over a meeting held here in his office. Special Secretary Health Dr Riaz Memon and Additional Secretary Dabeer Ahmed also attended the meeting.

He said that it had come into his notice that many illegal nursing training centres were working and there was no check and balance over them, while drugs inspectors were not performing their duties properly.

He said it has become a common practice that fake medicines are being sold at medical stores and drugs inspectors are not disposing off their duties honestly. He directed secretary health to take strict actions to curb them and submit a report in this regard within 15 days.

He warned those officers who showed lethargic attitude in doing their duties and said that strict actions might be taken against them.
