Vacancies in Railway Hospitals in Rural Areas

Vacancies in Railway Hospitals in Rural Areas

Vacancies of doctors in Railways, including in Railway hospital in rural areas, are filled up by posting Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) selected doctors. Short term vacancies are being filled up by appointing Contract Medical Practitioners or by deputing doctors from near-by Railway hospitals ensuring continuous availability of doctors in these Health Units. All Health Units have adequate availability of medicines. X-ray and Lab facilities are made available on basis of outsourcing. Instructions have been issued to provide 20 Medical Road Mobile Vans at different locations to provide easy access to medical facilities in remote & inaccessible areas. Presently there is no fixed tenure of rural posting for doctors as services are being satisfactorily managed by need based transfer and posting of doctors.

This information was given by the Minister of State for Railways Shri K. H. Muniyappa in written reply to a question in Lok Sabha today.
