MP urges Admn for availability of ultra sound facilities at all District Hospitals, CHCs

Port Blair, June 26: Mr Kuldeep Rai Sharma, Member of Parliament feeling the clinical necessity of the islanders has written a letter of request to the Lt. Governor to consider providing of Ultra sound facilities at all the 03 District Hospitals located at Car Nicobar, Mayabunder and Garacharma and 04 Community Health Centers located at Nancowry, Diglipur, Rangat and Bambooflat in these Islands. Highlighting the issue, Mr Kuldeep Rai Sharma has expressed that at present patients who need to undergo ultrasonography for diagnosis of actual cause of ailments are referred to GB Pant Hospital for which they have to incur extra expenditure on their transportation, lodging and boarding. Moreover, as the Ultrasonography facilities  available at the GB Pant Hospital is not sufficient to cater to the requirement of large population of these islands,  the patients have to wait for many days for their turn to undergo ultrasonography which further deteriorate their health condition. Consideration of the Lt. Governor for having Ultrasonography facility in the District Hospitals and CHCs is sought by the Member of Parliament as such facilities will not only be beneficial to the islanders, but also GB Pant Hospital will be free from extra burden and can give more attention to the patients of Port Blair and adjoining places.
