CCPO Amin Wains said on Thursday that the Qila Gujjar Singh Police Lines Hospital would be made functional soon.
Wains said extending the best educational and medical facilities to families of policemen was the foremost priority of the department. He said the department had decided to revamp the hospital on this account.
Ashraf said six specialists, medical officers and emergency staff would be posted at the facility. He said the hospital would be equipped with 42 beds. Ashraf said the facility would have an operation theatre, a children’s ward, a gynaecology, outpatient and emergency department. He said the establishment of tuberculosis and hepatitis centres at the facility would be prioritised. Ashraf said the project of revamping the hospital would conclude in a few months.
He said all documentation had been completed in this regard. Ashraf said Lahore Police had been taken historical steps to facilitate the families of policemen. He said this carried as much weight as training policemen to combat terrorists. Ashraf said raising the morale of the force and improving their standard of life was a chief priority. He said this would enable policemen to effectively perform their duty of securing citizens’ lives and properties.
