Lucknow: Speaking at a hotel in the city, Deputy CM Brajesh Pathak said that the aim of small hospitals like Community, Primary Health Center, Health Sub-Center, Health and Wellness Center is to help patients. To provide treatment closer to home. That’s why the system here should be kept correct.
Pathak said, “We have to fulfill the dream of making UP’s health services number one in the country. We need you in this campaign. This is not possible without your cooperation. Today Uttar Pradesh is on the path of development. Every section is benefiting from the schemes run under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. State’s hospitals are being linked with technology. There is a need to further improve the treatment system in small hospitals in urban and rural areas. Can provide treatment to patients keeping in mind small things. Can also save them from running to a big hospital. This will save patients time and money. Timely treatment will be available. The way of treatment of serious patients in big hospitals will also be easy.” He was addressing the state-level orientation program of medical officers in-charge of 100 aspirational development blocks.
He informed that 100 aspirational districts have been selected at the state level. Under 75 points, works related to health system improvement will be done in these districts. He said that when good work is done at the PHC and CHC level, the district level hospitals are burdened. We have to work at the local level only. The Deputy CM directed the subordinates that display boards should be installed at all PHCs and CHCs and the details of doctors attending daily should be written on them. He also gave instructions for effective operation of Health Wellness Center and Sanjeevani App. Deputy CM said that by the year 2025 we have to make the country TB free. He expressed gratitude on behalf of the people of the state to the doctors who worked continuously during the Corona period.
Additional duty of CHO should not be imposed
Hospitals are being equipped with modern facilities. Health ATMs have been installed. Hospitals are being linked with telemedicine, teleradiology and other facilities. Sanjeevani app has been launched. So that patients can get better and modern treatment with technology. He said that care should be taken while assigning the duty of Community Health Officer (CHO) and other health workers. Will not be posted at other places while on duty. Doctors-employees should not be called in the meeting while on duty. This makes it difficult for patients to get treatment.
Immediately admit serious patients in CHC
The Deputy Chief Minister said that now only women are being admitted in the 30-bed CHC for delivery. Patients suffering from other diseases will not be admitted. This system needs improvement. Apart from this, the baby should be discharged after delivery only after the first round of vaccination. No matter how much pressure comes for the holiday. He said on the instructions of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, 100 aspirational blocks were selected. Data was collected on the basis of survey. Work is on to connect these blocks with the main stream. Deputy Chief Minister Brijesh Pathak said that facilities of health services are being increased in selected blocks. He said that health services are the backbone of the society. You do all the work in adverse circumstances. You all have done it in Covid. You served the patients when people were afraid of the wind.
