“Directions have been passed for fixing the charges of the Ambulance which would be published in the leading newspapers shortly. Every district hospital will be provided the Critical Ambulatory Service before 31st March , 2011,” said Sham Lal after inaugurating the first ever Super Specialty Oncology (Cancer) Clinic in the Government Hospital Gandhi Nagar here.
He formally launched the first ever service of Critical Ambulance in the hospital.
Describing Government Hospitals, Gandhi Nagar, Sarwal in Jammu and Rainawari in Srinagar as premier institutions, he said that these institutions cater to the large population and Government has equipped these hospitals adequately. All kinds of specialized services are available in these hospitals and people living adjacent to these institutions need not to go to Government Medical Colleges, said Sharma.
He said that Government was keen to promote the private sector to supplement Government efforts to provide quality healthcare facilities to the people across the State. He said that parameters of private Nursing Homes will be further reviewed to maintain the transparency in the system so that people can get services on genuine rates.
Similarly, the Government will strengthen the Nursing Colleges and AMT schools and Rs 40 crore have been earmarked for the purpose. He said that all Government run AMT schools will be revived fully to train the quality manpower.
