^^ good analogy of restaurants and food inspectors. now using that same example, just as we dont want to shut down restaurants simply because we might not have enough inspectors, we dont want to be shutting down clinics because we might not have enough supervision. which means that if we want to tackle the problem, we should be thinking in terms of putting more monitors in place, not making the shortage of doctors and clinics a more acute problem for the masses out there by restricting their ability to practise.

cant also be beating up on clinics for having a legitimate profit/ money-making motive. that's what drives most people everywhere, even the doctors in the west. without that incentive, we'd end up curtailing the supply of people who'd want to be doctors next generation.

issues then are more related to enforcement and supervision, less with the ethics and the ability to find quacks back home. nothing like enforcement to make people feel more ethical and engage in less quackery, whether it's back home or the west. Smile

I understand,any MP who is registered with state medical council or/and IMC can open private clinic anywhere in India purely based on the licence to practice given to him/her by the councils and begin practising irrespective of what conditions and facilities the clinic has.

He/she just need to have their name on the registers of the Indian Medical Council.

There are Code of ethical conducts stepulated by the council and based on the declaration signed by the doctor that he/she will abide by the codes,they can start the clinic.

Is it enough,in India, to allow any doctor to open a clinic anywhere and start treating ignorant patients,who know no rules,the conditions in the clinic and repose full faith in the doctor they visit.

Is is not necessary for any approved Govt. agency to inspect such clinics to approve of the facilities provided,irrespective whether the doctor has/is practicing in any other hospital for experience sake.

If such provision is not there in India, is not a flaw in the medical system on one hand and imposing too much trust and faith in each doctor who holds a licence to practice to practice ethically??

I am not a doctor but happened to interact with one,hence these doubts.

Is there any doctor here or whose parents are docs. who can throw some light on this??


if every doctor is forced to recite the hippocrates oath everyday he wakes up like we make kids do the shlokas or multiplication tables everyday.. then it should be fine... they can open the clinics everywhere.. the key thing is most of them forget their responsibility and knowledge within few years of practice...Smile worse still unqualified RMP's are another genre of monsters lurking around alongside all those ayurveds and homeopaths practicing and thriving on steroids.....LOL

the key thing you forget here is bulk of the responsibility here lies in that individual and not what is there in the clinic.. Smile

and also that only doctors who know they can do well open clinics...who the heck pays for the rent and utilities there.. otherwise... rest just live in hospital quarters...Smile

My 2 cents on the topic:

Health is a "state subject" there is no common set of regualtions for the private health sector.
Health isnt very high in the priority lists of states for policy agendas. The need for involvement of professional agencies and medical councils for self regualtion has been emphasised often but never has been adequate.
Thre are regulations under which the private health sector runs like the Drugs and cosmetics Act,CPA,Indian Medical council Act, Nursing home establishment act( only in few states), Bueareu of Indian Standard Act etc..

Implementation of these regulation has been weak and some of them havent been updated in ages

The current Health Minister had suggested a CME program and periodic tests for Doctors to renew their licenses which faced stiff opposition. I dont know how that proposal is progressing...
