During a visit to the Government Medical College, Medical Education and Research Minister Om Parkash Soni said the government would soon fill all the vacant faculty posts soon.

The minister said facility for conducting all diagnostic tests would be made available at the college soon. He conducted a meeting with officials, including Secretary of Medical Education DK Tiwari, advisor to Chief Minister on Medical Education KK Talwar and Director of Research and Medical Education Dr Avneesh Kumar.

He said the college infrastructure would be upgraded to provide better medical services to patients.

The minister also instructed the officials to get all diagnostic machines lying defunct at the hospital, repaired so that these could be used for conducting tests.

He warned officials that if a machine at any department was found defunct in future, the head of the respective department would be held responsible. Patients at the hospital often have to get diagnostic tests done from private labs for want for infrastructure at the institute. He also instructed the college to set up a workshop so that the basic machinery repair was conducted without wastage of time.

The government had planned to set up a solar power system at the college under the Smart City project, he said. The minister also asked college authorities to submit a report on the usage of oxygen at the institute within the next 15 days.
