J-K’S JLNM Hospital gets NBE accreditation in three specialities

The National Board of Examinations granted Jawahar Lal Nehru Memorial (JLNM) Hospital in Srinagar accreditation to the Diplomat of National Board Courses in specialties such as anaesthesia, ophthalmology, and paediatrics.

It is a time to rejoice, especially for PG medical aspirants in Jammu & Kashmir, because NBE programmes will allow them to improve their skills. Furthermore, the hospital’s achievement will result not only in the upgrading of its medical facilities, but also in the hiring of more personnel and expert doctors under the supervision of whom the PG students will be trained.

Dr. Bilquis, Resident Medical Officer of JLNM Facility, told ANI, “NBE accreditation has assisted us in a way that our hospital will now have Post Graduate (PG) students.” Previously, the hospital was open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, but we had difficulty locating doctors after 4 p.m. However, given that it is a post-graduate institute, PG students will be available at all times, alongside our doctors. It will also benefit us in another way since, according to NBE standards, our hospital will receive two senior residents in each department of the NHM (National Health Mission), which will bring extra staff.’

“With the start of postgraduate courses in our hospital, a considerable improvement in inpatient care delivery will be seen,” she noted.

DNB courses have also been offered in District Hospitals and new Government Medical Institutions in Jammu and Kashmir, in addition to old government medical colleges and the Sher-i-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences (SKIMS). The goal is to develop the institutions, decongest the government medical colleges, and solve the union territory’s dearth of specialists.

While District Hospital Udhampur has been recognised in the field of obstetrics and gynaecology, GMC Anantnag has been accredited in the fields of psychiatry, ENT, and medicine.

Similarly, GMC Kathua has been recognised in the field of obstetrics and gynaecology, and GMC Rajouri in the field of anaesthesia.

The National Board of Examinations has also accredited Sub District Hospital Kupwara and District Hospital Kulgam in General Surgery.

Dr. Mushtaq Ahmad, Director of Health Services Kashmir, stated during a discussion regarding future endeavours, “We have applied for practically all district hospitals, and you will see that each hospital will become an academic centre in the near future. They will become training institutions on par with medical schools. And this will propel our health-care system to previously unfathomable heights. This will mark the start of a strong tertiary level health system in each district.” (ANI)
