Many were inconvenienced due to the absence of doctors and hospital minor staff in the maternity and childcare clinic in the Trincomalee General Hospital today.
The patients informed our news team that while the doctors were present, the hospital minor staff was not available.
Later the hospital officials directed the staff to the clinic.
However, by then, the doctors were also not available to treat the patients.
Our reporter said due to this act, patients coming from remote areas were greatly inconvenienced.
Our news team inquired about this incident from the Director of the Trincomalee general hospital Dr. G. Gnanagunalan.
The director informed that steps will be taken to direct the doctors and the minor staff to the clinic as soon as possible
