Panery Subsidiary Health Centre lacking medicine

In a glaring example of the government’s utter negligence towards the rural area, the Panery Subsidiary Health Centre of Udalguri lacks supply medicines. The SHC located at a distance of 9 km from Tangla town serves people from the places like Teliapara, Garuajhar, Ghagra besides people from number of neighbouring tea estates. There are two doctors and 3 ANN nurses and 2 pharmacists in the SHC. The doctors are alleged to be unpunctual.

When this correspondent visited the SHC on Friday Dr. Dipak Deuri was allegedly on unofficial leave. Talking to Assam Times Dr. Santosh Singh Yadav said,"We  don't receive adequate quantity of medicine supply. We treat 60-70 patients and medicine stocks of month ends in a fortnight." He denied the fact that doctors are unpunctual to the SHC.
