People complain poor healthcare in Marwah areas

People in far flung village of Marwah in this district today complained against poor health facility available in the area.

They said the government allopathic dispensary in the area has been "running" without doctors and paramedical staff since last three years.

The villagers alleged that the department concerned is not serious about giving health service to thousands of poor villagers.

They said that they have time and again approached the district administration and the CMO concerned informing them about the non-availability of staff in health centres, "but our pleas have fallen on deaf ears."

Muhammad Rafi of Marwah said, "It is very unfortunate that few health centres are running by local Asha workers and NRHM employees." 

Locals said an ambulance was provided to the primary health centre Marwah, "but till date it has not been put into service." 

They said the spare parts of the ambulance have been stolen by some unknown persons. 

The village has a population of over 6000 souls but the villagers alleged that the government has never cared for local healthcare. 

They said the vacancy of doctor has not been filled for last two years in the health centre. They demanded the doctor be made available immediately so that villagers do not have to spend money and time to go elsewhere for medical check-ups.

They alleged that doctors and paramedical staff posted in different areas of Marwah "are not performing their regular duties."

Despite claims of improving health care in rural areas by the minister concerned Bali Bhagat, the villages continue to face pathetic situation.
