Coming forward to help Covid-19 patients from poor families, a private hospital, Uppal Neuro hospital, has launched ‘Mission Rahat’ for poor families under which they would be given relief kits.

The hospital has also initiated a telephone helpline where the patients can get free consultation from doctors. Renowned neurologist and member of Punjab Medical College Dr Ashok Uppal said the patients who have Ayushman Bharat insurance card and BPL cards would be covered under the mission.

“All positive patients, who are unable to afford medical aid, can call at this helpline to order the Covid-19 relief kit. The patient would be required to submit his Covid test report through the helpline number following which the doctors on duty would analyse the patient’s condition through a telephonic consultation with him. The kit would be prepared accordingly and sent to the patient’s address,” said Dr Uppal.

He further said the kit would also be provided to passengers found to be positive during checks being conducted at the Amritsar railway station and bus stand. Dr Salil Uppal and Dr Ashraf, among others were present. — TNS
