Ratodero, Sindh: The Medical Superintendent of Chandka Medical College Hospital, Larkana, Dr. Safiullah Abbasi, in a letter to the Health Secretary has said that the Exhumation Boards of Ghulam Muhammad Mahar Medical College Hospital (GMMMCH) Sukkur jurisdiction are being conducted by the doctors posted in CMC&H of Kandhkot @ Kashmore, Ghotki, Jacobabad and Sukkur districts since long despite the fact that the Teaching Faculty of GMMMC is complete now.

The letter said that it is also evident from the fact that Special Medical Boards of these districts are being held by the doctors of GMMMC at Sukkur.

The MS said that this matter is pending decision since 2011 due to which the doctors of this Teaching Institution undergo severe hardships and added that due to the absence of these doctors, the indoor & OPD patients of this Hospital along with that of Medico-Legal Certificate work suffer seriously.

The MS further pointed out that law & order situation in these districts is also unsatisfactory due to tribal feuds other criminal activities because of which doctors of Larkana feel unsecured while travelling far away and returning back late night after performing their duties.

In view of above, the MS requested, that the Exhumation Boards of the above districts may be allowed to be conducted by the doctors of GMMMC & Hospital, Sukkur henceforth instead of Larkana doctors.
