King of Bhutan personally thanks the medical team who served during the birth of his son

During an audience with the King of Bhutan at Lingkana Palace, His Majesty’s Kidu Mobile Medical Unit team were all personally thanked for their not only their service to their country but also in the assistance during the birth of His Royal Highness The Gyalsey.

The Kidu Mobile Medial Unit that is made up of  mostly doctors and health staff from the Ministry of Health were invited to Lingkana Palace for tea, celebrating His Royal Highness The Gyalsey turning one hundred days old. He was born on February 5, 2016 at the Palace and is the first child for the King and Queen.

With some staff from the Royal Bhutan Army, the health unit often travels into the remote areas of Bhutan where they set up medical camps in order to offer care to those who would otherwise be unable to access it due to inaccessibility.

The group that included Dasho Dr. Tandin Dorji and Dr. Leki Wangdi, who attended to His Majesty as a Prince. The group offered Tashi Lekdhar, a special greeting, to His Royal Highness while taking an audience with His Majesty The King and Her Majesty The Gyaltsuen.

Lhab Dorji, the president of Jigme Dorji Wangchuck National Referral Hospital, spoke of the honour for the medical team to provide care during the Royal Birth, and their representation of the entire Bhutanese medical fraternity.

“That our own doctors, nurses, and health personnel served during the Royal Birth is an indication of how far we have progressed as a nation. It is a proud moment and an achievement for us working in the health sector,” Dorji said.

He went on to comment on how the Kidu Mobile Medial Unit taking a royal audience and His Majesty’s praise for the team, on top of all medical personnel across the country would motivate the medical fraternity in their work.
