Bandipora, Jan 9: A sub health centre in one of the remotest villages of Gurez in North Kashmir’s Bandipora district is without a doctor and paramedics for a long time, locals complained on Monday.
Locals from the Buglinder village of Gurez while complaining about the issue, said that the health centre is inadequately staffed particularly a doctor or a paramedics since a long time due to which patient care had been badly hit.
The locals blamed the concerned authorities for their “insensitive attitude” towards the centre and alleged that it lacks staff including a doctor and paramedics required for its smooth functioning.
“Due to non-availability of the heath staff daily patient care has also been hit badly while pregnant women and elderly ailing people of the area are also facing severe hardships,” one of the locals said.
“It seems that the administration has not done anything good for us yet,” he said, adding that the health center is also without basic facilities which shows the non-serious approach of the Government towards this village and health sector.
The locals have requested the concerned authorities and Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha to personally look into the matter and redress their grievances.
Meanwhile, Block medical officer (BMO), Gurez Dr Tahira said that one of the paramedics posted there was recently attached by the SDM to other area following an issue with locals. He said that now another staffer has been deputed to the health centre for its smooth functioning. (KNO)
