Tribesmen seek provision of ambulance service to Shelman


Residents of Kam-Shelman, the remote area of subdivision Landi Kotal demanded of the Emergency officer district Khyber to provide them rescue 1122 ambulance service to shift their serious patients on time to health centers in Landi Kotal and Peshawar.
The locals requested Syed Shoab Mansoor, district emergency officer, who visited Basic Health Unit (BHU)Kam-Shelman here on last day.
Earlier, the on duty health staff apprised the visiting official of the services provided by them to deal with emergencies.
The tribesmen said that due to lack of proper health facilities numbers of precarious patients died on way before getting health treatment therefore, they urged the district Rescue 1122 head to facilitate them with emergency ambulance service.
To shift delivery cases and intensive care patients on time to downtown hospitals, provision of Rescue 1122 ambulance service is inevitable, they opined.
The district emergency officer assured the tribal that their grievance would be conveyed to the highup for consideration.
