LG Saxena to minister, ET HealthWorld

In a recent development, Delhi Lieutenant Governor V K Saxena has raised concerns about the deteriorating state of healthcare services in the national capital. Saxena’s response came after Health Minister Saurabh Bharadwaj asked for an inquiry into the lack of medicines and consumables in city government hospitals. The lieutenant governor suggested bringing a white paper on the matter, highlighting the gravity of the situation.

According to reports, Delhi government hospitals have been facing a shortage of basic consumables, with some facilities lacking even essential items like cotton. Saxena expressed his disappointment at the state of affairs in these hospitals, calling out the “Delhi Model” of health service delivery as being in shambles. He criticized Bharadwaj for not addressing these issues effectively and instead resorting to blame games and media tactics.

Saxena also pointed out the failure of the National Capital Civil Service Authority (NCCSA) to take necessary actions, stating that the responsibility lies with the elected government to ensure smooth functioning of healthcare services. He urged Bharadwaj to take corrective measures and prepare a roadmap for improvement, suggesting the preparation of a white paper as a starting point to address the challenges faced by the healthcare system in Delhi.

In response, the Delhi government accused the lieutenant governor of playing politics on the issue and criticized him for not taking action against the officers responsible for the shortages. This exchange highlights the ongoing tensions between the two authorities regarding the healthcare crisis in Delhi. The situation underscores the urgent need for collaborative efforts to address the systemic issues affecting healthcare services in the capital.
