TANK, 14 May: The people visiting Tank District Headquarters Hospital are facing many difficulties due to unavailability of medicines at the hospital.

Patients at the hospital told TNN that despite claims of the government about improvement in healthcare facilities, medicines are not available at the public sector hospital and they are forced to buy medicines from the market.

“I have brought my nephew here at the hospital who had an accident. The hospital provided X-ray facility but other medicines and injections were not available and I bought these medicines from a medical store,” a person at the hospital said.

“We demand the government to keep a watch on the doctors and ensure provision of medicines to all patients,” another person at the hospital said.

On the other hand, the drug store in-charge of the hospital said medicines have been supplied to the hospital after two months. He said these medicines will be given to patients after clearance by the drug inspector which will take two more months.
