Absence of doctors puts patients to peril

The said even the OPD doesn’t open before 11.00 AM while the staff on night duty prefers to sleep rather than attending to the patients.

“Private practice is the only reason of the doctors showing up late to the hospital,” said a patient Abdul Majeed Dar. “We urge the authorities to take stringent measures against the doctors who’ve damaged the medical care in the district.”
