Giribawa Hospital needs doctors

Residents in the Giribawa Pradeshiya Sabha area in Kurunegala undergo severe health risks as the Giribawa Hospital lacks doctors.

About five doctors are required to serve the number of daily patients visiting the hospital, but only one lady doctor is present. The hospital has no doctors for the night. About 300 patients attend the hospital daily to get treatment and one doctor cannot attend to their medical requirements, they said.

Provincial Health Director Dr. N. Fareed told the media that he requested the Ministry to look into the issue and appoint several doctors. He said the ministry will resolve the issue very soon as 800 new doctors will be appointed this year to the hospitals countrywide.
