Health Desk- 2nd Sep, 2020: The High Court has directed all private clinics, hospitals, clinical laboratories, and diagnostic centres across the country to submit charts listing the fees for medical tests by September 9.

The bench of Justice JBM Hasan and Justice Md Khairul Alam issued the order on Tuesday after hearing a writ petition filed in this regard.

Supreme Court lawyer Dr Bashir Ahmed stood for the petition.

The court also ordered the authorities concerned to inform the court at the same time, of the progress in formulating guidelines to monitor clinics, hospitals, and diagnostic centres under the relevant law.

Earlier on July 24, 2018, the High Court directed private clinics, hospitals, clinical laboratories and diagnostic centres to publicly display their charges and fees for medical tests.
