The Federal Health Ministry has requested the federal public service commission (FPSC) to halt the recruitment of 24 senior registrars for Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) as the ministry is in efforts to transform the Pakistan PIMS into an autonomous body.
In a letter by joint secretary of the ministry, it is argued that, the hospital would develop its own service structure and no more civil servants would be required at the hospital. The commission had started conducting interviews of candidates for vacant posts of four BPS-20 professors, seven BPS-19 associate professors, 29 BPS-18 assistant professors, 24 BPS-18 senior registrars, a senior librarian of BPS-18 and 15 principal technicians of BPS-17.
Earlier, last year the shortage of staff, especially doctors, hamper administrative affairs and compromise patient care was seen in the hospital and PIMS top boss has formally written to the Supreme Court chief justice for immediate end to restrictions on recruitment process.
