Submit report on private hospital fees by Mar 5: HC

The High Court yesterday directed for submitting a progress report on fixing fees of health tests at private hospitals, clinics and diagnostic centres and hanging the price lists publicly and establishing CCUs and ICUs at the district level within March 5. A bench of Justice JBM Hassan and Justice Md Khairul Alam gave the order after hearing an appeal. The court also asked the Health Secretary to mention  the progress on formulating a policy for running private hospitals, clinics and diagnostic centres, setting March 7 for the next hearing. Petitioner counsel Barrister Dr Bashir Ahmed said on July 24 last, the court directed for fixing fees of health tests at private hospitals, clinics and diagnostic centres and hanging the charge list in public and establishing CCUs and ICUs at the district level. On August 1 , the Directorate General of Health Services formed a 5-member body for formation of the policy but the committee failed to inform the court of any progress.
