Baramulla: The non-availability of Orthopedic and Pedestrian doctors at Sub District Hospital (SDH) Pattan, is compelling the residents of Pattan to visit Srinagar hospitals.
“SDH Pattan which falls between Baramulla and Srinagar caters to residents of hundreds of villages. These two important departments are non-functional in the hospital. We have been raising the issue with administration again and again but they don’t pay any heed to our demands,” Gulam Mohiuddin, a trader in Pattan said.
Residents also said that due to the lack of X-ray machine in the SDH patients, patients are forced to get X-ray done from private clinics.
They appealed director health Kashmir to provide strengthen the healthcare system in the hospital.
