Paramedics threaten to suspend services

LAHORE – Members of the Punjab Paramedics Alliance (PPA) held a protest in front of the Punjab Assembly on Wednesday and threatened to stop working in the public hospitals from next month and take to the streets if the Punjab government did not issue a service structure notification for paramedics’ basic pay scales 1 to 16.
PPA President Malik Muneer Ahmed said the Punjab government catered only for the people who protested in front of the Punjab Assembly and added that perhaps Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif liked such attitude. Ex-opposition leader Chaudhry Zaheer-u-Din and ex-labour minister and member provincial assembly (MPA) Ashraf Sohna promised the protestors to raise the issue in the provincial assembly.
A large number of paramedics including laboratory technicians, electrocardiography (ECG) technicians, dispensers, drivers and other staff members participated in the protest. Agriculture Minister Ahmed Ali Olakh promised the paramedics to apprise the CM of their problems. The protest caused a traffic jam on The Mall.

    paramedics are back bone of the hospitals. why they are ignored only in Punjab. CM Punjab is requested to look in to the matter and solve this critical problem in priority bases. Once the paramedics given a service structure,they worked more efficiently.
