The Association also hailed the “tireless and sincere” work done by Principal Medical College GMC, SMHS administration, Department of Anaesthesia, Surgery, Opthalmology, Neurosurgery, ENT and other specialties. “DAK did this small contribution by providing Injection Albumin and TPN bags to patients so as to augment the healthcare services being provided to the victims,” it said.
DAK requested the Director SKIMS, Principal GMC, Principal Medical College SKIMS, medical superintendents of various tertiary and periphery hospitals to be in touch with the Association so that the poor victims who can’t afford the advanced treatment or are unable to meet expenses of day to day drugs can be benefitted. “We are in constant touch with our doctor colleagues and senior faculty members for the feedback and there will be constant visits to SMHS and other hospitals across valley to screen out most deserving patients who need our help,” DAK said.
Meanwhile, DAK President Dr G M Mir has applauded the efforts of all those doctors and particularly non-medicos living within or outside the state who on the Association’s request have been donating money for such a noble cause.
