The Balochistan health department has shown the door to 81 contract doctors within the last few days due to their continued absence from duty.
Hafiz Abdul Majid, the secretary of the provincial health department, said the sacked doctors, including male and female medical officers, were recruited on a contract basis to ensure the provision of health facilities in far-flung areas of Balochistan.
They were among the 487 contract doctors and nurses who were appointed to fill vacancies for medical professionals in basic health units.
However, a recent probe revealed that 81 of the doctors had not been showing up to duty for a long time and they were subsequently dismissed. These doctors belonged to Quetta, Mastung and other parts of Balochistan.
