SRINAGAR: President Doctors Association Kashmir (DAK) Dr Suhail Naik on Saturday expressed serious concern over the “dented” healthcare due to prolonged NHM strike who have been raising their demands.
In a statement, Dr Naik stresses upon government “not to waste further time and move ahead in a positive direction” after the assurances delivered by health minister Bali Bhagat in the current assembly session.
“There has been a limit of extrapolating the regular health staff and that limit has already been crossed. Healthcare services are under threat now as it is beyond human capacity to work that too especially for female health personnel,” he said.
Dr Suhail said DAK urges government to frame a high level committee and hold meaningful dialogue with protesting NHM employees to diffuse crisis in the interest of administration and patient care.
“DAK is optimistic that government will resolve the genuine issues of NHM employees at the earliest so that they resume their duties with honour,” Dr Naik said.
