More paramedics to be trained

    We must encourage private traing institutes to join this program. Govt alone can`t tarin large number of people to meet international demand. Most of countries are facing labour shotages in healthcare field so we must make this opportunity to send our people for those positions.

    I feel there is a bigger demand and need for high quality, well trained paramedical staff in this country without worrying about the International arena.

    Home is currently where high calibre professional medical personnel are currently required. Why should the government of Sri Lanka spend huge amounts on training professionals to send them abroad? It is right here that such calibre people are required to improve the Healthcare situation which in many areas & fields is unacceptable as per patient charter and International standards of Healthcare.

    If anyone is the victim of an accident in Sri Lanka there are no Paramedics who come to the rescue.

    By what Nimal Siripala has said it seems paramedics are being churned out more as an export commodity than for the benefit of suffering Sri Lankans.
