Trust between doctors, patients needs to be restored: Baijal

Sunday, 14 April 2019 | Staff Reporter | NEW DELHI

Mutual trust between doctors and patients is deteriorating and needs to be restored, Delhi Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal said on Saturday. 

"With changing times, there has been a paradigm shift in the doctor-patient relationship. Trust between the two has gone down and needs to restored. Today, patients are well informed and impatient. Empathy from medical professionals, a kind word or a pat on the shoulder will go a long way in restoring the trust," Baijal said at the 64th foundation day of Sir Ganga Ram Hospital. "Today's doctors are full of stress due to patient-centric pressures. Even on weekends when  professionals from other fields are relaxing, doctors are busy in conferences. Doctors should de-stress themselves to discharge their duties honestly," he added.
