More Than 97% Accused Doctors Go Scot-free In West Bengal

According to reports obtained by PBT from the West Bengal Medical Council (WBMC) under the RTI Act, 2005, more than 97% of complaints against doctors are dismissed or doctors are left alone with a mere “warning” even after they are found guilty for medical negligence or ethical violation.  Letter obtained from D.K. Ghosh, PIO and Registrar of the WBMC has shown that out of a total of 515 complaints received against doctors over the past 10 years, registration of only 15 doctors were temporarily suspended (see WBMC letter below).  However, Ghosh did not even elaborate who these 15 doctors are or for how long their licenses were suspended by the medical council.  PBT has filed an appeal against the WBMC for their deliberate attempt to suppress vital facts about their botched up investigation to shield the errant doctors (see news below).
