The Governor of Arunachal Pradesh Brig (Dr.) B.D. Mishra (Retd) paid a surprise visits to healthcare centres in the peripheral areas of the Capital complex on Friday to see for himself the last mile delivery system of health facilities. The Governor visited the Urban Health Centre, Karsingsa and Community Health Centre (CHC), Doimukh.
Finding no one in the Urban Health Centre, Karsingsa, the Governor expressed his displeasure that public welfare facilities are not kept open to the public even during the working hours. The essential infrastructure, such as dispensaries, health centers and hospitals are meant to serve the needy people and it must be made available, he pointed.
Interacting with the medical officer, CHC, Doimukh, the Governor emphasized that healthcare providers must try to stay extra time in rendering their services as people look forward to them. He also suggested that the healthcare centers must be clean and obsolete equipments must be removed as littering of goods gives an impression of unhealthy working atmosphere.
