This is a letter addressed to the Chief Minister, Health Minister and Secretary Health, government of NWFP and it is about the District Headquarter Hospital Dir Upper. The building of this hospital was built recently in 2008 and we still have shortage of qualified and specialist doctors here. Currently, there are only 14 doctors out of 55 sanctioned posts. The MS has also conveyed to Peshawar that the causality cannot be run effectively due to an acute shortage of medicines. -MURAD ALI MOHMAND, Peshawar, via e-mail, August 31.
