(BSF / CRPF / CISF / ITBP / ASSAM RIFLES / SSB / NSG / SPG), and their
dependants are entitled to all facilities available at BSF Composite

are appointed and all facilities become available the advantages of

Why do we have to
sometimes procure some medicines from the local market and why cannot
all medicines be made available in this hospital itself?
It is only due to the dedicated attention of BSF
Medical set-up that such a wide variety of medicines and services are
made available routinely inside the hospital itself. One may compare BSF
Hospitals with the State Government and other Central Government
Hospitals and note the big difference in availability of medicines free
of cost here, though other Govt Hospitals have much larger budgetary
allocations for medicines. Short expiry, poor availability in the
market of some medicines, refusal by certain firms to supply small
quantities of medicines on Govt terms and conditions, unforeseen
excessive demand for the same medicine etc are some of the reasons for
unavailability of certain medicines in this hospital. In case some
medicines are unavailable in the dispensary the patient must first
contact the treating doctor for any replacement and if even that is not
possible, reimbursement of bills can be claimed after procuring the
medicines from the market on payment.

Malaria. One can get Dengu which is equally or even more disabling.
Cooperate with the local Municipal authorities in avoiding stagnant
water collections, garbage disposal and maintaining good hygiene and
sanitation practices. The Anophles mosquito is lesser seen in Jalandhar
