18th Amendment: Dissolution of PMDC ruled out
Islamabad: Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC)
would continue to exist as the only means to ensuring uniform standards
for all the medical practitioners in the country.
This was stated by Dr Ahmad Nadeem Akbar, Registrar PMDC while talking to reporters here on Tuesday.
Answering a question about devolution of subject of health to
provinces under the 18th Constitution Amendment, he ruled out
dissolution of the council saying that as a national standard setting
body for medical education and registration authority for all doctors,
the PMDC would continue to function.
He welcomed the formation of Punjab Healthcare Commission and
informed that similar bodies had been in existence in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa
for a longtime.
He further said the step was not aimed at usurpation of power of the
council – a federal body having jurisdiction in the whole country – he
said he had been assured by the Chairman of the Commission Justice Amir
Raza that the commission would respect the Federal Law and would not
have anything to do with registration of medical practitioners or their
deregistration nor would it have anything to do with medical education
or medical and dental colleges in Punjab.
Dr Ahmad Nadeem Akbar said that PMDC did not have the jurisdiction to
register or set standards for small clinics, dispensaries and hospitals
and this vacuum had been gracefully filled by the Punjab Healthcare
The Registrar said that it had been agreed between the commission and
the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council that if there was any complaint
of negligence of a healthcare establishment in Punjab it would be
referred by the PMDC to the Punjab Healthcare Commission
and if there was any complaint of negligence of a practitioner
registered with PMDC it would be referred by the commission to the PMDC
for further action as per respective laws.
Dr Ahmad Nadeem Akbar was quite categorical in saying that
registration of doctors and setting of standards of accreditation of
teaching hospitals and medical colleges fell under the domain of
Pakistan Medical and Dental Council and this fact had been acknowledged
by the Punjab Healthcare Commission and there was no cavil about this. Dawn

Kidnapped ICU VC given four-year extension
Peshawar: Chief Minister Ameer Haider Khan has approved four-year extension in
service to the kidnapped vice-chancellor of Islamia College University
Appointed as first vice-chancellor of the
university on June 26, 2008 for four-year term, Ajmal Khan was kidnapped
by unknown militants from outside his official residence at the
Professors' Colony on September 7, 2010.
Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) accepted responsibility for his
kidnapping and released his three video tapes in a bid to pressure the
government to accept their demands.
The government and
the law-enforcement agencies have failed to secure his release. The
60-year old academician is a close relative of the ruling Awami National
Party (ANP) President Asfandyar Wali Khan and this was apparently the
reason for his kidnapping.
On a number of occasions,
senior officials in the government made off-the-record claims about
early recovery of the vice-chancellor but it didn't happen.
teachers and students across the province also didn't show enough
reaction to press the government for making effective efforts for the
recovery of the vice-chancellor. In the first few months after his
kidnapping, some demonstrations were arranged to demand his recovery.
the fresh notification by the chief minister about the extension to
Ajmal Khan, it was generally believed that he has been forgotten.
