Need for medical resources

State hospitals continue to run short of essential drugs and medical equipment, the government has not made sufficient allocations in the budget to address this problem, the JVP said today

The JVp added that as a result, the doctors have been compelled to suspend surgeries on patients.

JVP member of the Western Provincial Council Dr. Nalinda Jayatissa told a news conference today that the Maharagama cancer hospital is in need of medical equipment for the treatment of cancer patients too.

“Today, the problem is all the more acute at the Homagama hospital,” he said.  (KB)
