The government is considering proposals to fill the vacant administrative positions across directorates of health services of Jammu and Kashmir and in some tertiary care hospitals, in addition to effecting major transfers of healthcare administrators.

In a bid to improve management of healthcare institutes in J&K, the government is currently considering proposals for filling up vacant posts of deputy chief medical officers, block medical officers and district information officers in directorates of health services in Jammu and Kashmir divisions, a source in the health and medical education (H&ME) department said. The source said that H&ME department had recently sought seniority based list from the two directorates in order to fill these positions.

In order to pave way for filling posts, the directorates have also been ordered to furnish details of doctors who would be interested in serving in an administrative position and give up their current job profiles. In addition, the source said, government was also in the process of effecting transfers of medical superintendents and other officials already serving in administrative positions.  

“There are hospitals in peripheries where the same administrators have been working for a decade,” he said adding that government has asked the directorates to furnish details of these and other district hospitals and currently serving medical superintendents.

Apart from directorates of health, an official said, reshuffle of deputy medical superintendents and medical superintendents in Government Medical College (GMC) associated hospitals in Jammu and Srinagar was also in the pipeline. “For years, due to various reasons, these positions have been filled on adhoc basis only,” the official said adding that the government was considering to streamline the process.

The official said that in the recent past, Government had sought a report from GMC Srinagar regarding the administrative posts in its hospitals. “All administrative posts, from level of CMO to medical superintendent are being scrutinised,” he said. 

Commissioner secretary health and medical education, Atal Dulloo, said that “some necessary changes” were being planned but refused to detail it out. “It is quite early to say anything but we are considering some proposals, he said. He added that there were “essential processes” that needed to be put in place in order to increase the efficiency of health sector.”

He further said that government will ensure that existing rules and seniority is adhered to in the new postings.
