Srinagar, Apr 24, CNS: Believe it or not, there is a single doctor posted at Primary Health Centre Lawyapora in the outskirts of Srinagar city who takes care of all patients.
The doctor posted is a dental surgeon but she performs even the role of a gynecologist. “Patients with different ailments visit this health centre and the doctor takes care of them, even prescribes medicines to them about which she has no scientific knowledge. It is not her fault. She is a dedicated doctor but is hapless as authorities are not posting anymore doctors here,” said a group of locals to news agency CNS.
“It is a hell of a job and the doctor posted here really is overburdened. Due to staff crunch, she can’t avail an off even,” said lcoals.
They appealed Health Department to depute another doctor at the Centre.(CNS)
