It may be recalled that during Mr. Gopal's recent visit to Thiagadurgam, people had come out with a slew of complaints on the functioning of the local PHC.
The Collector asked the officials to keep the complaint boxes under lock and key. As far as government hospitals were concerned, the keys should be kept in the custody of the Joint Director of Health Services.
The keys of complaint boxes in PHCs must be entrusted to the Deputy Director of Health Services.
Mr. Gopal said the Joint Director and the Deputy Director should scrutinise the complaints periodically and initiate speedy remedial measures.
The Collector appealed to patients and visitors to come out with suggestions to improve the medical delivery system.
`Destroy parthenium weeds'
Mr. Gopal asked the officials to carry out an operation to destroy parthenium weeds in two spells.
n the first spell, destruction of the weeds (by setting them on fire) could be carried out in residential areas, schools, and in the vicinity of drinking water sources. In the second phase, the weeds along the highways, railway tracks and on poromboke land could be burnt.
The Collector sought the cooperation of Block Development Officers, Executive officers of town panchayats, panchayat presidents and officials of the PWD and Highways departments to make the programme a success.
Mr. Gopal said the enumeration of people below poverty line in the town panchayats had began today. He urged the people to extend their cooperation to officials.
