In a large gathering of victims of medical negligence and ordinary people from all spectrum of life, PBT celebrated its 14th Anniversay yesterday (Dec. 30) at Rotary Sadan in Kolkata (see news below). PBT president, Dr. Kunal Saha, called on all honest doctors to step forward and take away the regulatory authority from the hands of the unscrupulous members of the medical community headed by the disgraced ex-MCI president, Dr. Ketan Desai and his cronies who are still occupying top positions in the MCI and IMA. PBT president also criticized the government for keeping blind eyes to the ongoing corruption involving medical education and practice of medicine. Dr. Saha also vouched that PBT will continue to fight medical negligence and healthcare corruption through new PILs in the Supreme Court and High Courts. Dr. Saha also severely criticized the Mamata Banerjee government for their miserable failure to take action against negligent doctors. As announced recently, PBT has opened a new and vastly improved service center and head office at a prime location in Kolkata (Address: Commercial Point (Room G/4D/1), 79 Lenin Sarani, Kolkata 700013)to help victims of medical negligence.
