Thank Doctors on Doctors Day
“Doctors’ Day is a way of saying thanks to the doctors who work tirelessly every day to keep their patients and our community healthy. It’s a privilege to have some of the most skilled doctors in the country, and Doctors’ Day is just one small way we can honour them for all their hard work and dedication to the health of our community.
It is celebrated on July 1 all across India to honour the legendary physician and the second Chief Minister of West Bengal, Dr Bidhan Chandra Roy. He was born on July 1, 1882 and died on the same date in 1962, aged 80 years. Dr Roy was honoured with the country’s highest civilian award, Bharat Ratna on February 4, 1961.
Every year this holiday is celebrated in India on the 1st of July. This observance fulfils a need to show the doctors and physicians in our lives how important they are to us and how invaluable their treatments are that cure us. The celebrations are indicative of the respect that they command in the lives of their patients and thus obligate them to fulfil their responsibilities as well.
There may be several reasons that can be attributed to the significance of this honour being celebrated in India.
The large population of India depends on the efficiency and responsibility of physicians to a large extent at all times Medical professionals in India over the years have shown remarkable improvements and made definite progress in medical treatments that need to be acknowledged·
Since the days of the Hippocratic Oath, the doctor has been held in high esteem as healer, a trusted confidante and patient advocate. The relationship between doctor and patient is invaluable during times of crisis. Technological breakthroughs have done much to advance the science of medicine; however, the patient-physician relationship remains the fundamental tenet of medicine.
Therefore, the next time you see your doctor, say thank you or send them a thank you card and let them know how much you appreciate them. It will mean the world to them.
