Civil Sandeman Hospital MS Dr Arbab Kamran said, “After taking charge of his post, the health minister conducted a tour of the hospital and was briefed about the hardships being endured by the people. Paying heed to the concerns, he has provided the hospital three modern ambulances which will help transfer patients to and from the hospital.”

The MS said for the last 20 years not a single ambulance was given to the Sandeman hospital. “Ambulances have been provided as well as other problems are being resolved on priority due to the earnest efforts and interest of the current government and the provincial health minister,” said Dr Kamran.
