"He also examined short and long-term measures that need to be undertaken to create LNJP into a model hospital."
New Delhi, April 15 - Delhi Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung Tuesday urged people to become aware of diseases like haemophilia and realise the value of blood donation.

There should be greater awareness generated about haemophilia so that people are aware of bleeding disorders and realise the value of blood banks and particularly of blood donation, Jung said during his visit to the Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan hospital here.

Jung's visit to inspect the hospital's medical and infrastructural facilities comes ahead of World Haemophilia Day, which is observed April 17.

More and more people should come forward and donate blood, he added, urging the hospital, which has one of the largest haemophilia centres in the country, to make up more programmes about health awareness.

During his visit, Jung visited the new facilities being developed and gave suggestions to improve them keeping the patients' needs and concerns in mind.

He also examined short and long-term measures that need to be undertaken to create LNJP into a model hospital.

Hospitals are critical for any city, but more so for a city like Delhi which caters to not just the residents of Delhi but to thousands of patients who come from outside Delhi seeking medical help. It becomes all the more necessary for hospitals to be equipped such that they can live up to the growing needs of the patients, Jung said.
