People lock up PHC Sirhama
Demand posting of docs, paramedics
Srinagar, July 21: Showing resentment against failure of the government to deploy doctors at Primary Health Center Sirhama, the residents of the village have locked the Center.
Scores of patients who had thronged the PHC for treatment after waiting for hours lost their patience and locked the PHC to register their protest against the non-availability of the doctors.
The residents alleged that they have frequently solicited the attention of health authorities towards the patients’ problems but their efforts failed to materialize.
According to inhabitants of the village, crores of rupees have been spent on the colossal building of the PHC.
“But it sans healthcare as there are no doctors and paramedics to attend the patients who visit the hospital daily. I conveyed ire of the residents to Block Medical Officer as it was hard to convince the agitating people to unlock the hospital. The BMO eventually came and assured the inhabitants that doctors will be posted in the hospital soon” said Mudasir Ahmad Dar, a student.
The residents said if government will not deploy the requisite medicos and paramedics in the hospital, they will take out a protest rally against the staff deficiency.
