Doctor – Maseeha Ya Ek Paisha?
Hosts: Ayesha Tajwar and Faisal Qureshi
Guest: Dr. Seema Qayyum
Topic: Doctor – Maseeha Ya Ek Paisha?
Description: It is seen that Doctors in our society are considered more as angels than professionals. They are expected to serve the people under all circumstances no matter how bad the situation may be.
The recent strike by Young Doctors Association in Punjab has thrown up some uneasy questions for all sides where they demand an appropriate service structure and increase in pay scales.
The question remains whether Doctors have the moral right to take such steps? Is it a question of ethics or professional rights?
Is it appropriate for the Government to call out the police and make arrests after having repeatedly gone back on its words?
Here is another episode of Perspectives where Faisal and Ayesha discuss this issue in detail with Dr. Seema Qayyum.
