‘National Doctor’s Day’ was celebrated with enthusiasm by ‘The Trained Nurses Association of India-Surat’ at Surat Civil Hospital’s Kidney Building. Nursing sisters celebrated Doctor’s Day by blowing balloons symbolizing peace, cutting cakes, saluting doctors.
Speaking on the occasion, Iqbal Kadiwala, Nursing Council said that ‘National Doctor’s Day’ is celebrated to appreciate the service and dedication of the life saving doctors who take care of the happy health of the child before and after birth.
