Helpline for free doctor teleconsultation launched

Amritsar, May 8

The FICCI FLO in collaboration with the Punjab Police and Saanjh, introduced a Covid helpline to provide free consultations by top city doctors.

The initiative aims to provide help to the patients at their homes, so that they don’t have to visit hospitals which are already swamped. The helpline will provide teleconsultation with senior doctors, including the ones, who have been treating Covid patients on the frontline.

While launching the helpline, FICCI FLO chairperson Manjot Dhillon said the main aim of the initiative was to help people consult doctors by being at their homes and also to educate them about measures to ensure that need for hospitalisation is minimised.

“Our panel of doctors include pulmonologists, ENT specialists, gynaecologists, paediatricians, critical care specialists, cardiac surgeons and people who have been dealing with critical Covid patients. Since, there are a number of helplines and Covid warrooms managing the situation, we wanted to reach out to people giving them as many possible channels for help.”

The helpline number is 77430-25434.
