Paediatric cardiac centres in twin cities planned
The government is planning to set up two paediatric surgery centres in the twin cities. One would be set up at the Armed Forces institute of cardiology Rawalpindi and the other at PIMS( Pakistan institute of medical sciences). Health secretary Anwar Mehmood at the symposium at PIMS said that:
The paediatric cardiac surgery had not been given the importace it deserved and as such no major institution had been developed until now.
Mr Mehmood reiterated his ministry’s resolve to establish a health city in Chak Shahzad where some big institution like Federal University of Health Sciences and Sheikh Zayed Hospital are likely to come up.
Very soon Islamabad would become a major healthcare centre,
