 600 graduate paramedics unemployed

600 graduate paramedics unemployed

2013 Jun 03

The Chairman of Sri Lanka Society for Medical Laboratory Science (SLSMLS) Ravi Kumudesh has stated that 600 paramedical officers are unemployed, who completed graduate programme introduced to state universities in 2005 following a request made by the Ministry of Health in order to reach international standards of paramedical service.

He said that there is an attempt to recruit Graduate doctors into government service under the same salary scale of medical diploma holders as there is no proper procedure or interest regarding the recruitment of graduate doctors to the Health Ministry.

Therefore, the basic salary of a graduate paramedic officer is Rs. 15,440 which is close to Rs. 15,250,the basic salary of an undergraduate employee, he added.

When administrative officer attached to Ministry of Health E.M Nalika Edirisinghe was contacted, she stated since there is not a separate procedure to recruit graduate paramedics she cannot comment on the matter.
