In line with his commitment of providing quality healthcare facilities and periodic monitoring of health related activities and operations at Block Level, Mr Ranbir Singh Pathania, MLA Ramnagar, chaired meeting of Rogi Kalyan Samiti here at PHC Majalta.
After taking feedback from field officers and local people, Mr. Pathania discussed in detail on the routine working of health institutes and reassured his commitment to further streamline and improve the quality healthcare facilities in the constituency. He pressed upon the need for more medicos and para-medical staff in the area so that public does not suffer for the shortage of staff at health institutes. On the urgent requirement of Digital X-Ray facility and more Dental chairs in the area, he assured to take up this issue at higher levels so that these facilities are available at an earliest. He also called for providing halogen, LED lamps so that health institutions are properly illuminated.
On the issue of sanctioning of Sub-District Hospital for Majalta, he said that though Majalta has bloomed up into a fully-fledged Tehsil but no one has taken up the cause of sanctioning SDH at Majalta. He said that during the last session of Assembly he had raised the issue for sanctioning SDH at Majalta to provide better healthcare facilities and fulfil the aspirations of the public of the area.
On the issue of Accidental Hospital on Dhar road at Manwal, he said that though Manwal is situated in heart of Dhar-road, the area lacks accidental Care facilities from Billawar to Udhampur.
