Imphal, Sept 13: Yaingangpokpi Lamjing Nupi Lup condemns the transfer of two doctors from Primary Health Centre (PHC) Yaingangpokpi even while there is lack of doctors at the PHC.
Speaking to media persons at Manipur Press Club, K Inaobi Devi, Secretary of Yaingangpokpi Lamjing Nupi Lup said that the PHC of Yaingangpokpi is the only medical centre where almost all patients from Ukhrul, Senapati and IE Districts are being treated. While the centre is lacking in the required number of doctors which each PHC must have, on which ground the concern department issued notice to transfer another two more doctors from the centre itself, she questioned.
K Inaobi Devi also said that during the month of August one of the doctors was notified to be transferred from the centre but was prevented from doing so due to strong pressures from the locals and meira paibis. Unfortunately, on September 5, 2016, medical department issued another notice for transfer of two more doctors which is not acceptable, she added.
K Inaobi Devi further said that if the concern department wishes to transfer doctors than they must fill the required posts instead of leaving them vacant.
Though two doctors have been notified for transfer from the centre, until and unless other doctors are posted in their stead, the women body will not allow any transfer of doctor from the centre.
If their demand is not fulfilled, they will not have any choice than to shut down the PHC at Yaingangpokpi, she added.
Currently, only 4 doctors have been looking after the PHC, including the doctors who have been given notice for transfer, while there should be a total of 6 doctors excluding nurses as per medical norms.
