In absence of functional lifts, patients at the Government Dental College at Afzalgunj these days are huffing and puffing while climbing staircases to avail check-up and treatment.

Despite being the only government-run dental college in Telangana, it does not have functioning lifts for the past six months resulting in sick and disabled patients struggling on wheelchairs. In some instances, patients end up literally crawling their way up and down the stairs to access healthcare on the upper floors.

Students pursuing BDS and Post-Graduation at the Government Dental College (GDC) have earlier raised the issue of non-functional lifts with senior health officials. However, thanks to inordinate delays in taking-up repairs, the patients at the hospital continue to face difficulties in taking the flight of stairs.
