Peshawar: In the general ward of Khyber Teaching Hospital (KTH), Peshawar, a lady from Waziristan waiting for her turn for a routine check-up, nurses and doctors treated her as routine offering no special treatment and emergency. This means she’s on a normal routine check-up with a gynecologist.

As everyone wants to visit the best doctor for treatment no matter far or near, or some prefer a doctor recommended by other people. Some stick with their tried and trusted physician despite the fact that the doctor is not very qualified.

The issue is when people like the lady from Waziristan arrives after more than 7 hours traveling for a routine check-up.

When we ask the nurses, they respond that she is normal as a routine with no serious condition even her treatment can be done with any of her nearest health centers. It’s not necessary for this kind of condition to visit here unless the treatment facilities for her are not available at their nearest health facility.
