HYDERABAD: Doctors at government hospitals can now work in peace, at least on the security front, as Special Protection Force (SPF) would be deployed at three prominent hospitals in the city and in Warangal district. Gandhi, Osmania, and Petlaburj Maternity hospitals in the city, will be protected by the SPF from May 28.

Eight SPF personnel would be deployed in each hospital. A head constable and three constables would guard the hospital at any given time. There were reports of attacks on junior doctors at the Gandhi and Osmania hospitals by  relatives of patients in recent imes. Medical fraternity raised serious objection to the assaults and sought protection.

“Eight personnel are allotted to each hospital. They will start working from May 28,” Tejdeep Kaur Menon, director-general of Telangana Special Protection Force, said. SPF has been deployed at the Niloufer hospital from 2011. 

“The SPF visited Gandhi hospital on Tuesday. We are making arrangements to accommodate SPF personnel here during day time,” said Dr G Venkateswarlu, superintendent of the hospital.
