Health and Family Welfare Minister Mohammad Nasim on Wednesday directed the doctors not to go for strikes making the patients hostage.

"Both the physicians and the patients should be alert so that health services are not hampered. No demand could be realized by making the patients hostage," he said speaking at an exchange of opinion meeting with leaders of Bangladesh Medical Association (BMA) and Swadhinata Chikitsak Parishad (Swachip) at secretariat in the city.

The minister urged the patients and their relatives to go to Bangladesh Medical and Dental Council (BMDC) if they have any complain against any doctor, without taking the law in their hands.

The BMDC will take actions over the allegations as per the law, he said.

Replying to a question from journalists, Mohammad Nasim said BMDC was not active before 2010, but now it is functioning fully.

He said a law is being formulated for the protection of patients and doctors.

This law will play an epoch-making role in health services, he said, adding that the draft law will be placed before the cabinet soon.

Director General of Directorate of Health Prof. Dr. Abdul Kalam Azad, BMA President Dr. Mostafa Jalal Mohiuddin, General Secretary Dr. Ehteshamul Huq Chowdhury, Swachip President Prof. Dr. M. Iqbal Arsalan and Secretary General Prof. MA Aziaz were present in the meeting, among others.BSS
