Collector’s appeal

He appealed to the medical officers to be courteous and patient-friendly while providing treatment for the patients.

Mr. Nayagam, who earlier inspected the hospital, also verified the registers including the attendance registers, the medicine stock register.

He ordered action against a Pharmacist who had proceeded on leave without handing over one of the registers.

Earlier, addressing the panchayat presidents of the Andimadam block, the Collector called upon the civic chiefs to execute the solid waste management programme for achieving overall economic development through an eco-friendly strategy.
