Chief Minister, Mufti Muhammad Sayeed Monday launched four cardiac-and-trauma care ambulances in order to ensure timely transfer of patients requiring advanced medical treatment in tertiary-care hospitals.

As part of the Emergency Medical Service, the fully-equipped critical care ambulances shall be stationed at Sangrama, Anantnag, Pampore and Jammu, which have been strategically chosen so that patients are shifted to tertiary hospitals well in time for advanced medical treatment in cases of emergency.

Appreciating the gesture of Borderless World Foundation, a Pune-based NGO which provided the ambulances, Mufti Sayeed highlighted the need for deployment of more critical care transport whenever a patient has care needs exceeding the current emergency medical service standards. 

On the occasion, Health Minister, Lal Singh informed the Chief Minister that around 70 ambulances procured under NHM have been pressed into service to facilitate quick referrals so that patients’ lives are saved. He said the department will make ambulances GPS-enabled so as to ensure their availability for transportation of patients who require advanced medical treatment.
