STATE TIMES NEWS SAMBA: The child specialist in District Hospital Samba has been sent on 6 months’ leave ignoring the service exigencies. Since he was the only child specialist in the hospital he could be sent on such a long leave only after making the adequate alternative arrangements. In the absence of child specialist the people are forced to go to the private clinics or Government Medical College Hospital Jammu taking risk of the life of the patient because of time gap. People from far off places of the district reach the District Hospital with their children with serious ailments but are completely disappointed knowing that there is no child specialist. People alleged that on one hand the Prime Minister Narendra Modi insisting upon ‘Beti Bachao’ and also making promises to provide all types of the facilities in the hospitals, on the other hand the leave sanctioning authority had been quite liberal in sanctioning such long leave to the only specialist risking the life of the children. The people have appealed to the Director Health to post another child specialist in the District Hospital Samba and also find out the compelling circumstances under which the aforesaid child specialist was sent on such a long leave at the cost of the patients’ healthcare.
