Work on Trauma Centres should be accelerated: minister


KARACHI: Provincial Health Minister Jam Mehtab Hussain Dahar on Tuesday took serious notice of slow pace of construction work on Trauma Centres in various districts of Sindh and directed secretary health to look into the matter.

He said that it was really a sorry situation that despite releasing of funds, the contractors concerned had not finished the work that showed negligence of competent authority.

He ordered the secretary health to ensure timely completion of these projects so that people may get better health facilities at their door steps.

Dahar also directed additional secretary health to ensure availability of senior doctors in government hospitals because it had come into his notice that in certain hospitals there was shortage of senior doctors. He said it was our duty to provide better health facilities to the people.
