Vohra bats for specialised medico centres in Valley

Jammu and Kashmir Governor N N Vohra has stressed the need for progressively enlarging specialised medicare centres within the state for enabling timely and effective management of various diseases.

He said on Saturday that specialised centres were required particularly for orthopaedic problems so the people did not have to travel long distances for receiving the required treatment.

The governor was speaking at the inaugural function of the 32nd North Zone Annual Conference of the Indian Orthopaedic Association organised by the department of orthopaedics, Sher-i-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences (SKIMS) Medical College, Bemina, at SKICC, here.

He expressed hope that all the required medical care and surgical interventions would become available within the state in the next few years and no one would have to undergo the cost and inconvenience of travelling to receive treatment in hospitals outside the state.
Vohra called upon the members of the medical fraternity to secure maximum benefit from the rapidly advancing frontiers of scientific knowledge.
