HCM CITY— The HCM City Department of Health is working with Phạm Ngọc Thạch Medical University to expand a programme to send recent medical doctors to hospitals in the outlying districts of Cần Giờ and Củ Chi.

The department plans to ask the city’s People’s Committee to offer more preferential policies to attract doctors to these hospitals.

According to a department report, the current policies have not helped attract doctors to work at district hospitals.

For instance, Củ Chi District Hospital needs 60 additional doctors, but has only been able to hire 14.

To temporarily solve the shortage, the department yesterday approved the sending of 40 doctors who work at city-level hospitals to Củ Chi District Hospital.

The city-level hospitals are Paediatrics No1, Gia Định People, Từ Dũ Obstetrics and Bình Dân.

These hospitals are also required to provide equipment to Củ Chi District Hospital to ensure healthcare for local residents. Training courses for the district hospital’s doctors are also being carried out.

Cần Giờ District Hospital has previously only had doctors from city-level hospitals working at its satellite health clinics. VNS
