No cure for ailing clinics
Homeopathic dispensaries at Noida’s government hospitals and primary health centres (PHC) have been lying in neglect for the last couple of years now.
At the sector 30 government hospital, the homeopathic dispensary is in a shambles — peeling plaster, leaking roof and dirt all around. Recently a part of the roof collapsed and fell on a patient. Patches that were filled some time back have started giving way.
Moreover, the government hospital building was recently whitewashed and repaired. The homeopathic dispensary was, however, kept out of the exercise.
Homeopathic doctors allege that the administration is purposely neglecting the dispensary so that it can shut down and the hospital can take over the area.
The condition of the homeopathic dispensary at the Dadri PHC is worse. It runs in a small room just enough to accommodate a table and a chair. During rains medicines get damaged as water flows into the room.
