Delft, Neduntivu people ask for permanent doctor

People of Delft and Neduntivu islets in Jaffna staged a protest in front of Delft divisional secretariat yesterday (10) asking that they be given a permanent doctor.

 

They said that for many years they have only had a retired doctor serving on contract basis, who is finding it difficult to treat patients on his own.

The people notef that they will have to take a long boat ride to reach other hospitals in Jaffna.

Jaffna district secretary Nagalingam Vedanayagam visited the protestors during a field visit, discussed with them and promised to raise the matter with provincial health officials.
