Sivamohan complains of dearth of medical officers in 10 hospitals in Kilinochchi, Mannar

Sivamohan MP 700 01

Tamil National Alliance Parliamentarian Dr. S.Sivamohan has complained that there is a dearth of medical officers in ten hospitals in Kilinochchi, Mannar.

He made this statement addressing Parliament on Wednesday. He stated that there are a number of Medical Officers who assumed duties in the Vavuniya District but haven’t reported for work in proper due to the lack of medical facilities. Vavuniya General Hospital is the most frequented in the district. Patients from Mannar and Mullitivu and the border villages from Anuradhapura seek treatment at this hospital.

He said:

“Ten hospitals in Jaffna, two in Kilinochchi and eight in Mannar are without Medical Officers. In the Mullaitivu District, there are four without any medical officers; steps were taken to appoint some officers. Eventhough duties were assigned for the officers it is reported that they haven’t reported to work due to the lack of facilities in the hospital.

I request the minister to take necessary action to appoint certified General Physician Consultants to the Vauniya Hospital. The Health Ministry is trying to keep it as a model hospital. The officials are unwilling to appoint permanent consultants to the hospital. This occurrence is faced in all the district hospitals. No eye surgeons have been appointed to the district hospitals for sometime now and the people are suffering as a result. My humble request is to take immediate action to recruit eye surgeons to the Vanni hospitals.”
