Our Correspondent

Ludhiana, December 26
Fourteen years back when the DMCH started a health centre at Pohir village, the surrounding 10 villages with no-health facilities wore a pathetic picture of people living under the shadow of diseases. The DMCH took a bold step adopting these 10 villages and after years of hard work by DMCH doctors going there regularly and providing treatment with free medicines, today the 10 villages stand as role model for any community.

Keeping up its tradition of serving the rural masses, the DMCH has decided to extend concessional healthcare to the population of 100 villages of Dehlon block in New Year from January 1 to March 31, 2003, for making the world-class patient care accessible to them at the Dayanand Medical College and Hospital by slashing down the treatment cost.

The concession includes free OPD consultation to the population of these villages. A 50 per cent concession will be offered on the bed charges in general wards, 50 per cent off on all the surgical purchased from the hospital drug store, 20 per cent off on all the medicines purchased from the hospital drug store and 10 per cent off will on all the diagnostic tests. This will be applicable to all kinds of treatment, including surgery, medicine, gynae, skin, orthopaedics, paediatrics, eye, neurosurgery, endocrinology, nephrology, urology, oncology, neurology, paed surgery, plastic surgery, psychiatry, etc.

Homoeopathic consultation will also be free for the residents of Dehlon block and 20 per cent rebate will be given on the homoeopathic medicines as well.
