CM urges doctors to ensure prompt check-ups of patients

LAHORE   -  Caretaker Punjab Chief Min­ister Mohsin Naqvi Thursday visited the Benazir Bhutto Hospital Rawalpindi along with Provincial Minister for Information Amir Mir and in­spected medical facilities, as well as the cleanliness situa­tion, at the new emergency. He also delved into the matter of timely medical check-ups, par­ticularly after some patients expressed concerns about delays in both check-ups and X-ray procedures, partly at­tributed to the absence of cer­tain doctors and staff. The CM instructed doctors to ensure prompt check-ups for patients, emphasizing that there should be no delays in patient check-ups in emergencies, even by a moment. The provision of free medications to patients should be ensured without fail; he added and ordered the swift completion of patient registra­tions at the reception counter.
