GOLAKGANJ, Jan 3 � The 200-bed Dhubri Civil Hospital lacks many facilities to handle emergency cases. The Dhubri Bikash Aru Pragati Manch has submitted a memorandum to the State Health Minister through the Deputy Commissioner of Dhubri, demanding ICU facilities to ensure the treatment of patients admitted on emergency grounds.

There is also a demand that doctors should be appointed in all departments so that patients suffering from different diseases can avail of proper treatment. The memorandum also called for the early start of the proposed Dhubri Medical College. If these facilities are made available, the patients in the district will not need to travel either to Guwahati or Siliguri, which takes six to seven hours to reach from here.

It has been seen that many serious patients had earlier died on the way to Guwahati or Siliguri due to non-availability of emergency medical equipment and treatment at the Dhubri Civil Hospital.

Sources said that the CT scan has been out of order since the last several years. There is also no radiologist in the hospital. An adequate number of doctors are not available to look after the burgeoning gynaecological cases.
