Insufficient doctors at Nazira hospital

People of Nazira sub-division are suffering due to insufficient numbers of doctors at Nazira subsidiary health centre. This centre was established during the British rule in 1944 and is one of the oldest hospital of the Sivasagar district. Although departmently it is a SHC, it acts as a full-fledged hospital for the people of Nazira. At present, only 2 doctors are serving here instead of allotted 3 nos. Nurses and other staff are also not sufficient. Despite t existence of several PHCs in the sorrunding areas of Nazira, like Panibill, Kheluwa, Patsaku, Santok, Tengapukhuri, Namti etc. people of these areas came to this hospital hoping for better treatment.
