The availability of the specialists and Medical Officers in the market poses a difficult challenge. To take care of this issue, Walk – in – Interviews are conducted for doctors to fill up Ad-hoc Posts. In addition, campus placements are also done. For the medical officers at the PHC, wherever possible, MBBS doctors have been recruited and for the remaining ones, AYUSH doctors have been placed to ensure quality services at PHCs. The detailed status on medical manpower is presented under the respective sections.

To provide specialized MCH and other services, hiring of consultants for the CHCs and above has been delegated to the Regional Deputy Director and the district hospital authorities respectively who monitor their performance similarly, the powers to appoint ANMs and other paramedical have been delegated to the concerned district authorities.

As compared to medical, the vacancies for paramedical are comparatively much less. Currently, about three fourths of position for nurses are filled up at district and sub district hospitals. Nevertheless, it too remains a challenge. The lack of availability of adequately trained manpower is a constraint.

The assessment of vacancies for the medical and paramedical is an ongoing process. The vacancy of the medical and paramedical is assessed well in advance and the filling up of the positions is initiated with proper planning so as to have timely placement of medical and paramedical man power as well. However, as mentioned earlier, availability of medical manpower in the market is the issue, which is being addressed by establishing more medical colleges as per the standards.

Doctors have been sent to MPH programmes in IIPH and Hospital Management Program organized by the North Gujarat University. Personnel are sent to various workshops across the country from time to time.

Under NABH, both medical and paramedical staff are given training for their skill up gradation & deployed accordingly

A policy of stable tenure is followed in the Government and every effort is made to not to move people out before completion of three years.

For the position of medical and paramedical, almost all the recruited staff continues to provide the services. With regard to the staff at management units, there was a high turnover in the previous year’s which has come down to a large extent in the current year.

For delivering good quality rural health care Specialist services are required at the CHC level. Under the NHM, Government of Gujarat envisages strengthening CHCs by providing Gynecologists/ Pediatrician and Surgeon services. Moreover, Anesthetists are also appointed as a permanent/ contractual staff to facilitate operations. While the positions have been sanctioned by the State Government, availability of specialists still remains a major challenge.
