Early Times Report

Jammu, May 8: During his tenure, J&K's former Health Minister had allegedly ignored District Hospital Ramban, falling in his hometown, despite repeated requests of the MLA concerned to fill vacant posts of specialist doctors.
When Bali Bhagat was Health Minister, the local MLA, Neelam Langeh, who belongs to Ramban constituency, had, besides requesting the Health department, raised the question of shortage of doctors in the Assembly. Bhagat however ignored these requests.
Twenty-four posts of specialist doctors were sanctioned for DH Ramban. "Out of these, one each post of Consultant Gynaecologist, Consultant Anaesthesiologist,
Consultant Radiologist, Ortho, Dentistry, Dermatology, Pathology Dental Surgeon and four medical officers are lying vacant for a long time. Nobody in the department seems bothered about the vacancies", said sources.
They said that since the DH Ramban was announced, the Health department is yet to sanction the post of Paediatrician and Consultant Physician. Hence, patients requiring advanced treatment are referred to Jammu.
"Similarly, there are 57 posts of paramedical staff sanctioned for the DH Ramban. But 36 of them are vacant due to nonchalant attitude of department concerned. Against 11 sanctioned Junior Staff nurses, only four are available and the rest of unfilled, while six posts of Senior Staff nurse are also vacant", said sources. They said that one each post of Head Dental Technician, Senior Dental Technician, Sup. Dental Technician, Head Theatre Technician, Junior Theatre Technician and three posts of Ophthalmology Technician and four posts of Head X-ray Technician, and Senior Technician are yet to be filled.
"Given the shortage of manpower in the DH Ramban, the hospital has become a referral station to Government Medical College Jammu for advance treatment", sources added.
