Punjab Health Minister Dr Yasmin Rashid said on Tuesday that all health targets would be achieved through merit and transparency.
“Under the Health Sectors Reforms Programme, a positive attitude towards patients would be assured,” she remarked. She expressed these views while hearing the problems of various people from different areas in her office on Tuesday. She listened to complaints for three consecutive hours and also issued necessary directives.

“Only the provision of health facilities is not enough. Hospital staff should have the ability to ensure quality service delivery,” she said. “To reduce the burden on major hospitals, health centres are being strengthened at the district level.” Dr Rashid told the visitors that Prime Minister Imran Khan wanted to see the health sector free of political influence. “I am proud of the PTI government which has abandoned a closed door culture. Now any person can meet a minister for his or her problem,” she concluded.
