In the wards of Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia, Safdarjung and Lady Hardinge Hospital of the Central Government, the head of the department will be rotated every three years. The Ministry of Health has issued an order in this regard. The order said that the responsibility of the department will not be given based on seniority, but according to the appointment process.
A seven-person nomination committee will be set up for the selection of the head of department. It will consist of the deans of all three institutes, three assistant medical superintendents and a representative from the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS). In this regard, an official said that so far many departments have been seen to be occupied by the same doctor for a long time. Now this will not happen, but in view of the interests of the patients, the heads of the departments will be changed from time to time.
