Cabinet Division Approves Pakistan Physical Therapy Council Draft

Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi chaired a meeting of the Federal Cabinet at PM Office in Islamabad today.
The Cabinet accorded in-principle approval for establishment of Pakistan Physical Therapy Council and Pakistan Allied Health Professionals and Paramedics Council. The Cabinet further directed to present the draft legislation before Cabinet Committee on Legislative Cases.

PPTA officials’ meeting with the minister was very positive and he has assured his full cooperation for the purpose . The only constraint could be shortage of time and conduction of another national assembly session after the approval of the budget . He personally gave instruction to his staff to take care of this matter on priority and directed Dr. Abid Minhas, PT to coordinate directly to his staff.

We wish and pray that the circumstances turn in our favour and? request the whole community to remain on board and contribute to the process according to their resources as

TOGETHER WE STAND & TOGETHER WE CAN !!!
