CGHS doctors to be trained on administrative matters

CGHS doctors to be trained on administrative matters

New Delhi: The government today launched the first ever induction training programme for medical officers recruited under the Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS) to make them aware about service rules and regulations and to train them on administrative and managerial aspects.

The objective is also to educate them about proper utilisation of resources and inform them about various ethical and legal issues.

Health Minister J P Nadda urged the doctors to attend the nine-week programme with an open mind, stating the training would help them in carrying out their duties more efficiently in the long run.

“It is not only about treating patients. You will also have to look after some administrative issues and deal with files. That is when you will face problem and this training will come handy,” Nadda said.

The course, Nadda said, also aims at ensuring soft skills among these doctors so that they deal and communicate with the relatives of the patients in a calm and composed manner.

Around 231 doctors will undergo the training programme, which has been designed by the National Institute of Health and Family Welfare.

The conveyance allowance is reduced proportionately in case the total number of visits is less than twenty per month.

The Conveyance allowance is paid to Specialists/Medical Officers who maintain their own vehicle on the basis of a certificate that the conveyance allowance is being drawn in fulfillment of conditions stipulated for grant of conveyance allowance and in case of others, who do not maintain their own vehicle, on the basis of a certificate that the amount of conveyance allowance claimed is not more than the actual expenditure.

Instructions have been issued recently requiring the doctors to furnish the details of visits made in a prescribed format on a quarterly basis while claiming the conveyance allowance.
