AP govt mulls ban on private practice of government doctors
The Andhra Pradesh government announced that it was considering enforcing a ban on private practice of government doctors across the state. The announcement came in after an expert committee submitted a report to Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy on health reforms in the state. 

The committee was led by Dr Sujatha Rao, a former Union Secretary of Health under the Government of India and made 100 recommendations. During a review meeting at his camp office in Tadepalli in Amaravati yesterday, the Chief Minister had a long discussion with the expert’s committee and officials on the contents of the report.  Besides the ban on private practice, the report also suggested that the salary of government doctors be increased. 

The Chief Minister’s office released a press note that said, “The Chief Minister told officials to formulate guidelines for the same. He also directed officials to release a notification for the recruitment of government doctors’ vacancies. The CM asked the expert committee to formulate policies in such a way that all the theoretical knowledge is applied to practical problems.” CM Jagan said, “A new ‘Aarogyasri’ healthcare scheme will be implemented in 150 super speciality hospitals in Hyderabad, Bengaluru and Chennai from November 1.”
