"We came from a distant village in Kupwara. Our child was shifted here and has been treated well here. The operations in this hospital are going on as usual irrespective of the outside situation," he added.
A doctor employed in the hospital said that around 9,000 patients had come for lab tests in the last month.
"The laboratories at Government GB Pant Children Hospital are all fully functional. For the investigation side, every test is available in the hospital. Under the National Health Mission (NHM), all the treatments are done free of cost. We got around 9,000 patients for lab tests in the last month," the doctor said.
"There is a drastic improvement in government sector hospitals. Tests are available in every hospital these days. The referrals are less because of the improvement in the district hospitals," Dr Kanwaljeet Singh, Medical Superintendent said.
