A GENERAL practitioner has vowed to review the salaries of doctors, nurses and health workers if he wins the general election and is a part of the new government.
National Federation Party candidate Dr Bijend Ram said people who vote for him would be voting for their needs, the changes they demand as their health rights and for the progress of general medical service.
He promises to introduce a national health insurance scheme to cover all health costs for people if he gets into government.
"There will be easy access and choice of medical attention and there will no longer be a long waiting time if I win and get into government," he said.
"Also, I will ensure there are higher standards for cleanliness, sanitation and a dignified hospital grade environment."
Dr Ram said all mishaps done to patients in hospitals over the past years would be made public and there would be a speedy case resolution by a transparent management if he is in Parliament.
He said health service and political will and action on health were two different things.
"Health service involves the delivery of health service and providing care to our people.
"It has a structure and programs to be serviced.
"Political will and action on health involves inclusive and universal government decisions on how the total health being and welfare of its people are safeguarded."
