IMPHAL May 4: State Health minister Phungzathang Tonsing has appealed to both doctors and nurses to work sincerely with the cooperation of the general public while inaugurating the newly constructed Heinoukhongnembi Primary Health Sub Centre on Wednesday. The inauguration function was organised by the Directorate of Health Services, Manipur.
The inauguration was attended by the Health and Family Welfare minister as the Chief Guest and was presided by RK Anand MLA Naoriya Pakhanglakpa with Imphal West Zilla Parishad Upadhyaksha Th Saratchandra, NRHM director O Ibomcha and additional director of the medical department K Lokendro as guests of honour.
Phungzathang Tonsing said he is glad that a new Primary health sub centre was constructed in a short period as the old Primary Sub centre had been dismantled by the state government for widening the road along the Tiddim road, adding that all the required infrastructure are in place for the proper functioning of the primary health Sub centre except the uninterrupted water and electric supply which most of the PHSCs, CHCs and hospitals in the state also face.
Assuring to provide water and power supply soon for proper functioning of the PHSC, he expressed his desire for all the doctors, nurses and staff to wear uniforms when on duty in PHSCs, CHCs or in hospitals.
Every nurse and doctor of a hospital must take a major role in taking care of patients with sincerity and dedication and all sections of society must not create a bad atmosphere in health care areas by disturbing the proper functioning of hospitals, he said, appealing people to co operate in the smooth functioning of health care centres.
“The concerned department will try to provide the necessary equipments of the newly inaugurated PHSC. The state government is serious about the health care systems as it desires to bring about a healthy state,” the Health minister said.
Later, he also inspected the Mekola Primary health centre along with the officials of the Health department and assured to provide necessary equipments to the Primary health centre.
