  • Senior consultants have been resigning from the province’s biggest Lady Reading Hospital allegedly due to lack of job satisfaction, unfriendly environment and no prospect of promotion for faculty in near future.
  • In 2015, the provincial government passed Medical Teaching Institutions Reforms Act (MTIRA) which was initially implemented in four teaching hospitals of the province — LRH, Khyber Teaching Hospital and Hayatabad Medical Complex in Peshawar and Ayub Teaching Hospital in Abbottabad.
  • Before the enforcement of MTIRA 2015, all the health facilities worked under health secretariat but those covered under the law are governed by their respective Board of Governors (BoG) independently and the secretariat has no administrative and financial control over them.
