Bengal Govt to upgrade sub-health centres, recruit more than 5,000 nurses
The Bengal Government has decided to substantially upgrade the 10,357 sub-health centres in the state. Each sub-health centre will be turned into a ‘Health and Wellness Centre’, where staff nurses will be on duty along with doctors. Hence, 5,250 staff nurses will be recruited for the project.
As many as 12 health facilities, including ENT, dental, eye, ante- and post-natal treatments, and treatment of communicable diseases will become possible once the sub-health centres get upgraded.
It may be mentioned that under Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who is also the Health Minister, the State-run hospitals have improved immensely; the infrastructure has been developed manifold to ensure better service to the people.
