Non functional Health Sub-Centre

For over one year, the lone Health Sub-Centre at Upper Rassain in tehsil Ramnagar in Udhampur is not functioning at all and is closed. This Health Centre supposed to cater to the needs of lot many adjoining areas has otherwise been kept starving for a reasonable number of health staff. A Doctor is needed in this centre but only a Medical Assistant is posted here and after her long leave , another Assistant was posted who never joined resulting in the total non functioning of the Health Centre.
After all persuasive methods yielded no results, the residents held a demonstration and raised slogans against the inept handling by the Health authorities, of critical issues like reopening of the Sub-Centre. At least, the lone Medical Assistant posted here too should not have been withdrawn. Clarification from the BMO Ramnagar in respect of the matter, however, is found least convincing and it is, therefore, urged that the necessary staff be posted in this Health Centre to enable it function normally.
