New Step Towards safety

There are so many cases comes to the highlight in past as well as in current year. We know the Doctors, Nurses, Hospital Staffs are life savior for us every time. No doubt that their dedication toward their duties are un- matchable. On the other side, some of doctors are trying to cheat their patients for making money and put the patient life on stake for just own profit.

Here we want to give some personal suggestion to the government that they should issue a unique number to all the Health care service staff like doctors and staffs. These unique ID will update and shown in online portal, so that people will see the name and ID of doctor according to their cities or state. Resulting they can know who is the doctor and who are treating them. This process will help government also to track the crime doing by the doctors.
