As the Out Patients’ Department (OPD) of the Ginigathena divisional hospital is housed on the second floor of a three-storied building, it is proving to be a difficulty for patients who have to climb a long flight of steps to get to the OPD.

The problem has cropped up with the shifting of the OPD which was previously housed on the ground floor of another building. As over 300 patients turn up daily for OPD treatment, they urge the health authorities concerned to take steps to remedy the situation by shifting the OPD of the Ginigathena hospital to the ground floor as earlier, for their convenience.
