The two-day medical camp held here at Gurudwara Shaheed Bunga in Barzulla area of Srinagar concluded on Sunday with many people being attended by the doctors.
The camp was organized by Sri Guru Ram Das Medical College & Hospital, Amritsar in Punjab in association with valley’s Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee.
According to the organizers, the aim of holding this medical camp was to provide free of cost treatment to the people visiting the camp.
“People from the valley visit doctors in Punjab and Amritsar as we have some specialized doctors there. They spend a lot of money in visiting there and to ease this difference we held this medical camp,” said Tara Singh, an organizer.
“There is free of cost treatment in the camp. You don’t need to pay anything to get an appointment with the doctor,” Tara said.
“Experts in different sections from the hospital including ENT, Ortho, General Medicine, Gynaecology, Dental and Eye had been brought here for the advanced treatment of the patients,” he added.
“We are 22 doctors who arrived in the valley to be the part of this camp which provided free of cost treatment to the patients. We also are providing 40% relaxation in the treatment to the Kashmiri people at our Amritsar hospital,” said Dr Jas Karan who is working as an ENT Specialist in the hospital.
On Saturday, the camp was held at Guru Nank Dev Je High School in north Kashmir’s Baramulla district to provide the specialized treatment.
