The PHC at Safapora village, 40 kilometres off Srinagar boasts of qualified doctors and allied facilities.

"The treatment in this hospital is really good. There are enough facilities such as USG, X-rays, pathological labs and the dental section has also been provided. The doctors at the centre are well trained. The doctors also provide free medicines to poor patients," said a patient, Firdous Ahmad.
