LAHORE Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif has directed Health Department to set up satellite centres in the hospitals of Attock, Rawalpindi, Bahawalpur, Multan and other remote districts and link them with Children Hospital for seeking guidance of the specialist doctors in the treatment of the ailing children of these areas. He gave nod to Secretary Health Department Fawad Hassan Fawads proposal for the floating of Health Bonds and directed that this scheme should be implemented for generating resources for the treatment of children. He was addressing 7th annual symposium of Children Hospital Lahore here on Saturday. Members National and Provincial Assemblies, Secretary Health, Dean Children Hospital and Institute of Child Health Prof. Dr. Tahir Masood, Medical Director Prof. Ahsan Waheed Rathore, faculty members, doctors, nurses and para-medical staff were present on the occasion. The CM said development of health and education sectors were the top priority of the government and funds had been provided generously for this purpose. He lauded the services of doctors and para-medical staff of the Children Hospital in extending health facilities to the flood victims and said they had rendered invaluable services for the distressed people in the face of heavy odds. He said when the flood water was on the rampage, the doctors of Children Hospital were engaged in mitigating the sufferings of humanity. The CM stressed upon the doctors to utilise all their abilities and energies for the treatment of ailing children with professional commitment and dedication as they are the future of the nation. The CM further said the Punjab government had set up Danish schools in the province on the pattern of Aitchison College and Beacon House for providing quality education to the children of poor families free of cost. Academic standard of Danish schools will be even higher than that of Aitchison College and Beacon House. The poor children are as much talented as the children of rich families. However, there is a need for providing them equal opportunities and facilities for education, he said, adding that terrorism, extremism, illiteracy and economic problems were major problems faced by the country. The CM assured solution of the problems being faced by the doctors of the Children Hospital and directed Secretary Health to formulate recommendations for this purpose.
