ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) Insaf Doctors Forum Chairman Dr Khawar Sultan has appealed to start online services of Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) to facilitate the medical practitioners.
In a statement, he said with online services, doctors could apply for their licences or certificates while staying home and paying fees through online banking.
“We respect the decision of the court regarding resumption of PMDC and expressed the hope that the PM&DC will function properly and doctors across the country will get relief,” he said.

He said thousands of doctors were waiting for their licence as they could not apply for job without the licence.

He asked to resume functioning of NEB and conduct of screening examination for Pakistani foreign graduates without any further delay.
