Daily Free Rural Mobile Clinic - Baktha Jana Seva
Started in 1995, the hospital van with medical team and free medication visit villages on a daily basis to treat the rural poor. The service is rendered to villages in and around Tambaram. Patients who require further management are referred to Hindu Mission Hospital where they are treated free.
Hospital’s rural service focused on taking medical facilities to the doorstep of the villagers. The approach of the programme was to visit the villages, screen the villagers, detect, treat and refer to base hospital at Tambaram for free follow up wherever necessary. A medical team consisting of a medical officer, a staff nurse with sufficient common medicines would go out in Ambulance Van, stationing at a vantage point, cover a cluster of villages.
The treatment, clinics punctuality, dedication of the medical team, quality of medicines dispensed etc., has made the scheme a successful in the rural area.
This activity has been continuing without break since its inception.
