Orissa Medical Service Association (OMSA) said the State was heading for a crisis in health sector with 900 doctors set to retire from their respective posts in 2012. Addressing a press conference here, OMSA president Madhusudan Mishra said “The basic problem of government-run health services is gross shortage of allopathic doctors. About 2,000 doctors are practically rendering emergency health services to 4.5 crore population against the sanctioned post of 4,258. If one goes by population ratio, more than 12,000 doctors are required in the State”.
