Government should provide 108 National Ambulance Service and fill vacant posts in Civil Hospital Junga – Dr. Tanwar

Himachal Pradesh Kisan Sabha has demanded the government to provide 108 National Ambulance Service in Civil Hospital and to fill the vacant posts. State President of Kisan Sabha Dr. Kuldeep Tanwar said in a statement released on Friday that Tehsil Headquarters Junga is the center of 12 panchayats but there is no 108 ambulance service in any CHC or PHC of Junga area. Not only this, at present there is no vehicle to effectively implement the national programs in the civil hospital, the employees have to sit in buses and go to the field. On completion of 15 years of the old vehicle of the hospital, it has been parked at BMO office Mashobra.
Dr. Tanwar told that out of eight posts of staff nurse in CH Junga, six posts are running vacant due to which only two staff nurses are facing difficulty in giving 24-hour duty in the hospital. The post of cook in this 25-bed hospital is lying vacant for the past several years due to which the builders have to bring food for the patients from outside with their own money. Told that there is a great need to strengthen Civil Hospital Junga. If surgeons, orthopedics, and especially gynecologists are appointed in this hospital, then the pressure on patients in IGMC and Ripon Hospital can be reduced. They also say that the private company has been contracted by the department to investigate various diseases, whose report comes on the third day. Due to this the treatment starts after the reports of the patients. Told that for the last two-three years, water is leaking from the walls inside the hospital, due to which the building is getting damaged. Dr. Tanwar said that if the government does not provide basic facilities and fill the vacant posts in Junga Astal, then the Kisan Sabha will not hesitate to protest.
Medical in-charge of CH Junga, Dr. Manoj said that the matter regarding the filling of vacant posts has been taken up with the higher authorities. Apart from this, a matter has been taken up with the Public Works Department regarding the leakage of water in the building.
