Punjab to hire doctors directly in grade 19 and 20
Chief Secretary Punjab Jawad Rafique Malik has directed Specialised Healthcare Department to hire doctors on Professors and Associate Professors vacant seats on an ad-hoc basis.
He also directed Secretary Health Nabeel Awan to bring an ordinance to hire doctors against vacant posts in grade 19 and grade 20.
It would be the first time that the doctors would be hired directly on Associate Professor and Professor seats.
Earlier, the Health Department only hired doctors against the grade 17 posts.
