We are monitoring the provision of healthcare facilities through Punjab Healthcare Commission. I urge doctors to serve the humanity selflessly as Allah Almighty has granted them this opportunity to serve people.
No compromise must be made on the provision of healthcare services to people. Doctors, nurses and paramedical staff played exemplary role on serving COVID-19 patients. Free healthcare services are being provided to marginalized people through Sehat Insaf Cards according to vision of Prime Minister Imran Khan.”
