Furnish details of medical facilities, High Court orders DCs

Shimla, July 29

The HP High Court has directed all Deputy Commissioners to furnish information regarding the medical facilities available in every town in their districts, the number of doctors posted and the vacancies.

The court has also directed them to furnish the details of the paramedical and other staff and the infrastructure facilities, beds, and furniture fittings available in every medical facility in the districts. They were told to submit information regarding the demands made by the districts to the government.

A division Bench comprising Acting Chief Justice Ravi Malimath and Justice Jyotsna Rewal Dua passed the orders on a petition taken up suo motu as a PIL and another writ petition highlighting inadequate facilities for the treatment of Covid patients.

The Deputy Commissioners sought a week's time to furnish the required information. The court listed the matter for further hearing on August 4. — OC
