Bengaluru: The Global Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (GAPIO) on Saturday said it was planning to bring 15,000 retiring Indian-origin doctors from Britain to provide expertise to short-staffed medical institutions in India.

“With huge shortage of doctors in India, we are trying to bring in services of about 15,000 retiring doctors from the United Kingdom to provide their expertise to the short-staffed medical institutions across the country,” Ramesh Mehta, president of the British Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (BAPIO), said in a statement.

Mehta, who is also the vice president of GAPIO, said that out of the 1.2 million Indian doctors working across the globe, 50,000 work in Britain.

Non-profit organisation GAPIO calls Indian-origin doctors to interact and share their learning with each other annually at its conference.

The first day of the two-day event featured talks on “Changing trends in the management of Type 2 diabetes”, “Antibiotic abuse and how to minimise it”, “Advances in IVF treatment”, and “Progress in minimal invasive surgery in Gynaecology” among others.

Nearly 500 doctors are participating in the 2016 GAPIO international conference that will end on Sunday.

Union Chemical and Fertilisers Minister Anant Kumar will release a special postal cover during the conference, the statement added. (IANS)

Human hair wigs have several advantages over synthetic wigs

By- Digital Hub

I prefer synthetic wigs as it isn't something that I would wear all the time - just when I look different. Additionally, their ease of use is an essential factor for me. However, suppose you're looking to wear a wig for a fashionable accessory or as a way for you to show your personality. In that case, I'd recommend buying multiple synthetic wigs of various styles and colors instead of only the one human hair wig at the same amount. However, be cautious - only purchase top-quality synthetic braids that are more expensive as you might be disappointed by the new style you've chosen.
