At present medical facilities in Pakistan are not very good and they are not up to international standards which needs a lot of work to bring them up to international standards. Currently, there is a shortage of doctors in all the major hospitals of Punjab, which puts a heavy burden on the already working doctors.
The Provincial Government is working on a permanent basis to solve this problem quickly and for a long-term solution.
At present, there are a large number of unemployed qualified doctors in Punjab, about the Provincial Health Minister has taken permission from the Election Commission of Pakistan to start a doctors recruitment drive in Punjab.
Along with starting the doctors recruitment drive, the number of beds has also been increased in all hospitals of Punjab to accommodate more patients at a time.
