THQ Hospital lacks docs, facilities
KAMALIA – Tehsil Headquarters (THQ) Hospital is faced with shortage of doctors and other basic facilities like ambulance. In emergency an ambulance is called from the Toba Tek Singh district which is is 35 km away from here. It causes acute problems for the patients and their families. An operation theatre and a surgeon are available but there is no in-house anesthesia doctor at THQ Kamalia hence the patients have to go to private clinics in the city for surgeries. According to sources, various posts of doctors are lying vacant at the THQ Hospital due to which the patients have to wait for their turn for checkup. As the duty time runs out, the remaining patients often go to expensive private clinics or quakes for treatment.
Social circles demanded the government take immediate note of the failure of the management and provide ambulance and doctors at the THQ.
