PESHAWAR: A team of cardiac experts from Hayatabad Medical Complex (HMC) is ready to visit Chitral and hold a free medical camp there.
The cardiology consultants from the HMC will examine patients and do necessary diagnostic tests at the free medical camp, said Dr Muhammad Hakim, the focal person for Heart Linq (cardiac failure clinic) at the HMC.
He said the team of doctors will be available at the District Headquarters (DHQ) Hospital Lower Chitral from 9am to 3pm on Saturday to Monday (August 6th to August 8th, 2022).
It may be noted that Chitral has seen a phenomenal increase in hear diseases and deaths, especially among the young population, in the recent past.
To make the matter even worse, hospitals in Chitral lack facilities to diagnose the disease and treat cardiac patients.
There are even no cardiac surgeon or physician in any government hospitals, including the DHQ hospital of Lower Chitral.
