There are allegations that senior faculty are harassing junior doctors in Lucknow's KGMU hospital.

The issue of alleged harassment of junior doctors by senior faculty members at Uttar Pradesh’s King George Medical College (KGMU) in Lucknow, has reached the Indian health ministry. The Federation of Resident Doctors Association (FORDA)-India, has raised the issue with India's Health Secretary, Preeti Sudan.

FORDA-India, in a letter to the health secretary, has sought urgent intervention to stop harassment of resident doctors at KGMU. The FORDA has also requested the Vice Chancellor of KGMU to intervene in the matter.

“FORDA wants to bring your kind attention to the atrocities with junior doctors and mental harassment of doctors in Urology department, KGMU, Lucknow. Resident doctors are overburdened with work out of patient load,” said FORDA in the letter.

“Harassment and insult at work place by senior doctors affects mental health of resident doctor. Many a times, doctors have resorted for extreme steps such as suicide. We request you to save doctors from such steps,” added FORDA.

Dr Vivek Chouksey, President, FORDA-India, told DTMT that resident doctors of KGMU are compelled to do personal works of senior doctors. “The doctors also have to do family work of the senior doctors. And when the doctors refuse to obey them, they are threatened,” said Dr Chouksey.

It is reported that 19 resident doctors of Urology department have written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, UP Chief Minister Yogi Aditya Nath, National Human Rights Commission and Dean KGMU.

Senior doctors have refuted the allegations of harassing any resident doctor in the Urology department.
