PGI mulls outsourcing transport facility

Express News Service Chandigarh,December 19 PGI’s transport facility,including the free shuttle service for patients to travel between one block to another,may soon be outsourced if a proposal sent to the PGI director gets approved. Similar proposal was also mooted in the past during the tenure of Dr K K Talwar when he was the director of the institute. At that time,he had shot down the proposal. The department of Hospital Administration has moved the file for the provision of a more efficient transport service. “Once the proposal is accepted,the institute will get sufficient drivers and vehicles to ply for the convenience of those who visit PGI and have to walk for kilometres to reach from one block to another,” said an official of the department. The hospital is considering paying the outsourced drivers on the basis of the number of hours that they will be on the job. In 2006 when the proposal was first mooted,it did not get the approval from the Standing Finance Committee. Moreover,the amount calculated for the proposal was Rs 200 per hour.
