Southern rural doctors want Pradit out, P4P axed

- +

Rural doctors in seven lower southern provinces have called on the government to revoke its pay-for-performance (P4P) scheme and dismiss the public health minister. 

They made their call yesterday as representatives of the Rural Doctors Society (RDS) and the government prepare to meet today and again on Thursday to discuss the group's demands.

"We won't negotiate any further details of the P4P scheme. We want the government to abolish it and remove Public Health Minister Pradit Sinthawanarong," Somchai Srisombandit, one of the southern RDS's leaders and the director of Tak Bai Hospital in Narathiwat, said.
