10 Nov., Doti : Most of the health facilities in Far West State have faced acute shortage of doctors owing to the employee adjustment in the changed set up of federalism. The Far West Regional Health Directorate, Dipayal informed that the State was in need of 104 doctors.

The problem became acute after most of the doctors opted for working under the federal government. The post of medical superintendent at Doti District Hospital has been lying vacant for long. There are only two health officers though the provision is of three. The District Hospital said the doctors in the ninth and tenth levels have not been available.

The health facility with 25 beds has vacant posts for two doctors, a health assistant, two auxiliary health workers, a staff nurse and two auxiliary nursing midwifery. Similarly, Kedarakhada primary health centre at B0gtan Fudsil rural municipality has no doctor for one and half year. Only health assistant is providing service, said a local Hem Balame. “We’ve demanded doctors, but the demand is not fulfilled,” he complained. Jorayal primary health centre is another in need of doctor. Dadeldhura Hospital is under the federal government, while Seti, Mahakali and district hospitals are under the State governments.


After the primary health centre and health post came under local levels, the posts of doctors, ANM and AHW are lying vacant. Moreover, post of 19 doctors is lying vacant at Dadeldhura Hospital. Only five doctors have been providing service. A local from Dipayal, Dibyaraj Pathak, said although the health facilities were seeing influx of patients, they failed provide prompt service for lack of doctors. rss
