Nine Upazila health Complexes of Khulna district are miserably falling to provide proper services to the patients due to acute shortage of doctors .

In Digholia upazila health complex, ambulance is out of order since long and there is no ambulance driver here. Besides, seven other upazila health complexes also have been suffering from manpower shortage.
According to the reports of the statistics department of Khulna Civil Surgeon office, a total of 710 posts are still vacant in Civil Surgeon office and at nine upazila health complexes of Khulna district. Among the vacant posts 83 are in Khulna Civil Surgeon Office, Khulna General Hospital, TB Clinic, ID Hospital, Khalishpur Urban Clinic, Tootpara Urban Health Clinic and the rest 627 posts are vacant at nine upazila health complexes of the district.

Sources again said, recently the government has decided to give employment of 4th class staffs at different government hospitals and health complexes which is undoubtedly a praiseworthy initiative of the government in respect of Medicare service.
Dr. Md. Mozammel Haque Nizami, Health and Family Planning Officer of Dakop upazila Health Complex said, Crisis of cleaners (Sweepers) are more acute than that of physicians.
Amid the prevailing situation, Patients particularly women, children and elderly people   who come to the health complex seeking treatment for delivery cases and other complicated diseases including Hepatitis-B and cold related diseases are facing varieties of difficulties.
They are being compelled to receive treatment at higher cost at different clinics and hospitals either in the district or other places.
Dr. AFM Abdur Razzak, Civil Surgeon of Khulna said, the approval of employment of 211 staff have already given for Khulna and as such the crisis of 4th class staffs would be solved immediately by inviting tender.
Terming the newly elected Health Minister as "Efficient", the Civil Surgeon told that like other parts of the country, Medicare facilities for Khulna inhabitants would turn into an astonishing one.
