Gulmit, March 23: A dental surgeon has recently arrived at the Tehsil Headqarter hospital (THQ) Gulmit to serve the calamity hit people of Gojal for a period of one week. While inspecting the dental surgery room it was identified that the THQ hospital still lacks surgery set without which the visit of the dental surgeon becomes useless.
The technician responsible for fixing the dental surgery machine has returned from Gulmit without properly fixing and making the dental machine operational. The X-ray machine available has also become operational, and the people are waiting desperately for a permanent medical officer to arrive.
The calamity hit people of Gojal have been continuously demanding for permanent Lady Medical Officer, permanent gynecologist, permanent dental surgeon, permanent X-ray and laboratory technicians and full scale operation theatre with permanent surgeon. While several announcements have been made by high government officials it seems like the government is too helpless to purchase a dental surgery set for the hospital, let aside the demand for permanent medical officer, gynecologist, and full scale operation theatre etc.
