ATTOCK: JUL 19 – Chief Executive Officer Health Dr. Sohail Ijaz Awan has said that the Punjab government is paying special attention to the provision of modern medical facilities in rural areas and filling of vacancies in the district in the last two years.
The government’s dream of providing basic medical care to the people at their doorsteps through the deployment of majority of male and female medical officers in the headquarters hospitals, RHCs and BHUs of all the tehsils of Attock was shattered.
He was speaking to local journalists on the sidelines of a visit to Tehsil Headquarters Hospital Pindi Gheb. In the last two years, more than two dozen vacancies in Tehsil Headquarters Hospital Pindi Gheb have been filled by medical officers including specialists.Doctors have been deployed, Gaini, ENT and other important medical departments are working hard to deploy permanent specialists, but this is not possible due to problems in remote areas. I appeal to the educated class in this area.
He said that they should inculcate the spirit of service to the area in the minds of their children and after completing their studies, persuade them to provide medical facilities to the people in Pindi Gheb Tehsil itself. The situation will improve.Encourage the provision of facilities.
If the people of the area come forward for service, the medical situation will improve.Encourage the provision of facilities. If the people of the area come forward for service, the medical situation will improve. DNA
