The state government is organising a two-day medical check-up camp at Mansa on November 3 and 4 to provide health facilities at the doorstep of rural population.

Special secretary to the chief minister K J S Cheema on Wednesday said more than 500 renowned specialists from institutions like PGI- Chandigarh, AIIMS, DMC, CMC and also from Maharashtra will participate in the camp.

Chief minister Parkash Singh Badal has directed the Health department to leave no stone unturned to make this second camp successful like that of Badal village in Lambi constituency, where more than 17,000 patients were treated on September 23 and 24, he informed.

Cheema further said he had held a meeting with district Health officials and district administration and told them that people should not face any inconvenience during the camp.

Pick and drop facility and langar (community kitchen) will be made available to the patients, he added.

Patients will be treated free of cost, given medicine and follow up to three months will be done, he added.

Badal has suggested the Health department to hold such health camps at all district headquarters, Cheema said.
