Due to scarcity of doctors in District Hospital Khapulo, Ghanche, Gilgit-Baltistan the whole health system is in pathetic condition. In the entire district hospital roughly four specialist doctors appear to be on for to entertain patients thousands in number due to growing seasonal diseases because of harsh cold weather during winters. Due to non-availability of required doctors, hapless patients coming from across the district have to wait for hours in queues to get checked up. Most of the patients return back homes unchecked, their turn never comes.
Also lady gynecologists are missing from their duties and owing to this, pregnant women face difficulties in delivery of child. This, most of the times, leads to maternity moralities even in hospitals.
Given the woes of patients, GB local government and Secretary health GB should take immediate notice of the matter and ensure that adequate staff of doctors and gynecologists are available in affected hospitals.
