Minister 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 un-authorized nursing training centres and selling 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 discharging their duties honestly. He directed secretary health to take strict action against them.
