In another major stride toward making the Indian healthcare system better, PBT president Dr. Kunal Saha and eminent persons including several local doctors inaugurated a new branch of PBT in Hyderabad to better serve people of Andhra Pradesh. The celebration for inauguration of PBT’s latest branch was held at the Hyderabad City Convention Center and attended by many ordinary people and members of the media (see the news below). The Hyderabad branch of PBT will be headed by co-ordinator and advocate, Mr. P. Ramakrishna Reddy, whose daughter died from gross medical negligence several years ago. Mr. Reddy may be reached at 9396982233.
In his inaugural address, Dr. Saha called on all conscientious citizens and victims of alleged medical negligence to join hands in order to curb the menace of unethical and negligent practice by many doctors/hospitals in India. While vouching to fight medical negligence and corruption in the healthcare system today, Dr. Saha stated that PBT believes that most doctors in India still believe in the ethical values and humanitarian approach in treatment, but it is time that the “good” doctors come forward to stand up against the few “rotten apples” in the system to regain public trust in our healers.
