Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Wednesday said his government would consider setting up a Medical College in Sangrur to resolve the problem of trained doctors to treat cancer patients in the region.
The Chief Minister stated this at a meeting with a delegation from Tata Memorial Centre, which is running a cancer hospital in the region since 2013. The delegation was led by the Centre’s Director Dr. Rajendra Badwe. Punjab Health Minister Brahm Mohindra also participated in deliberations.
The Centre has offered to train doctors for a year in the operation of radiation machines and other state-of-the-art equipment currently lying idle at government hospitals due to lack of trained manpower.
