Dec 31, 2010 5:21:46 AM - itnnews.lk

Deputy Minister Lalith Dissanayake has said that Sri Lanka is the only country where services of Specialist Doctors are easily accessible.

He said that in Sri Lanka when somebody falls ill, it does not normally become an economic burden. The people can go from the Rural Hospitals to the General Hospital or the Teaching Hospital and receive treatment from specialist Doctors within 10 minutes. The Deputy Minister stressed that Sri Lanka is the only county in the world where such a service is available. The Minister expressed this view when he inaugurated the Maternity Ward at the Maha-Modrara Hospital in Galle. The Rotary Club in Germany has spent 40 million rupees in this connection. Deputy Speaker Chandima Weerakkody, Parliamentarian Romesh Pathirana and Nishantha Muthuhettigama also participated in this occasion.
