Puducherry: Jan 10, 2011
According to villagers in Sorapat, Thavalakuppam, Bahour and adjoining areas, only common ailments are being treated by doctors at the CHCs and Primary Health Centres (PHC). Whenever there was a case of emergency, patients are asked to go to the government general hospital, as these centres lack specialists to treat such chronic ailments. The most affected lot are pregnant women who travel long distances to visit the maternity hospital. They now want the government to make arrangements to get specialists visit their villages at least once a month.
