I am writing in order to raise the issue of people who are from the lesser privileged classes. They cannot afford the medicine for their loved ones in private hospitals so they go to the government hospitals for their treatment. However, sometimes the doctor prescribed them some expensive medicines that are not available from the pharmacy of the hospital and they face difficulty purchasing them.

Human life is very precious and expensive. Most of the time people lose their loved ones due to wrong or expired medicines. Sometimes they die because of the non-availability of medicine.

I request the health department officers to please take action on this and keep check and balance on the price of medicines in the government institutions. Please hire educated people in the pharmacy of government hospitals.
