JNIMS which is a premier State funded medical college and hospital located in Porompat, Imphal East has no proper neurosurgery facilities till now even though the Honourable Chief Minister on many occasions had assured of such facilities being available in the hospital. Recently one of my very close relatives was taken to the hospital after a stroke but was advised to go either SHIJA Hospital or Raj Medicity for the treatment as neurosurgery facilities are not available in JNIMS.
To my surprise the cost of neurosurgery in private hospitals was too high that it was impossible to go for treatment in these private hospitals. It is very surprising as to how a private hospital could provide facilities where a Government hospital cannot do so. It is high time the Honourable CM and the Health Minister look into such matter so that poor patients could avail of such treatment in Government hospitals.
