Subject : Urgent need for a government hospital in Barabanki
This is to draw your kind attention, to the poor health care facilities available to the citizens of Barabanki district. The district has a population of 8 lakh and at present there is only one primary health centre. This too has a skeletal staff of doctors and paramedics which is highly inadequate to cater to the requirement of the entire district. There is therefore an urgent need for a government hospital in the district.
The district comprises of eight tehsils, spread over one hundred square kilometres. In case of an ailment, the poor villagers have to either go to the nearest government hospital in Lucknow, or be at the mercy of private nursing homes, which fleece them for ordinary ailments. The fees charged by them are exorbitant, while the facilities offered are quite elementary. Essential facilities like CT Scan and Ultrasound are non – existent. This often leads to complications at a later date for want of timely diagnosis.
Such abysmal poor health care facilities result in valuable lives being lost. A government hospital with these facilities would be able to cater to the health of the inhabitants of the town, and the surrounding villages. Besides providing basic health care amenities, it would also help in the economic development of the district and its poor peasants.
There is thus an urgent need for a government hospital in Barabanki district to safeguard the health of the people, and also help in the economic development of the area. I sincerely hope you will consider my request and instruct authorities to take immediate action in this regard, for which I shall be obliged.
