 More Doctors for Rural Areas in West Bengal

Mamta Banerjee on Wednesday announced the issue of advertisements to hire more doctors in West Bengal

"In many parts of the state, we do not have doctors, nurses and even pathologists. We are facing an acute shortage," she said at ASHA Anganwadi workers' convention here.

She said the government would soon place advertisements on various websites for appointment of doctors from across the country.

"If we find that doctors from other states are willing to work in rural Bengal, we will employ them under the West Bengal Medical Services," she said.

Banerjee also said the government would start giving a fixed salary to Accredited Social Health Activists (ASHA) from April.

"From April, you will get a fixed monthly salary of Rs.1,300. The health department will give it. For this initiative, our government will have to spend about Rs.100 crore," she added.
