The state Commissioner for Health, Dr Kunden Kamshak, made the disclosure in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Jos.

Kamshak said the new condition of service would  finally put an end to the paucity of medical doctors being experienced in the state due to poor remuneration.

The commissioner said that a great number of doctors left Plateau for other states as a result to poor remuneration.

“When this administration assumed office we discovered that in the health sector we had paucity of doctors in the various health establishments.

“We also discovered that most of our indigenous doctors worked in other states. We discovered that most doctors left the state due to poor remuneration and condition of service.

“As a means of addressing this issue, the governor gave the approval and we came up with an improved condition of service for our doctors, which was implemented in September this year.

“With this we are hoping to attract more doctors who left the state due to the initial poor condition of service,” he added.

Kamshak said that the government would be reviewing the condition of service for the doctors along with other cadres of healthcare workers.
