Now you can get a doctor’s appointment even online at the Government Medical College and Hospital, Sector 32 (GMCH 32). The service was launched at the hospital on Thursday by UT adviser Vijay Kumar Dev.
Initially, each doctor will be allowed to daily examine maximum of eight patients who get appointment online.
Patients can visit the hospital website for registration. Once registered, they will be given a number that they have to present at the hospital registration window, from where they will be issued the OPD registration card.
The adviser said the public should be made aware about this facility through all possible means so that the facility was actually utilised optimally. Besides, the system’s feedback must also be maintained subsequently, he added. Earlier last month, the PGIMER had also launched a similar service.
Meanwhile, a newly installed 3D echocardiography machine was inaugurated at Block-C of the hospital.
Prof Atul Sachdev, directorprincipal, GMCH 32, said the echocardiography machine was a state-of-the-art equipment. He said cardiology facility would soon be available for patients.
An advanced life support ambulance equipped with essential life support equipment was also inaugurated.
HOW IT WORKS
Patients can register themselves for a visit to any specialist on a chosen date on the GMCH32 website .
After keying in some basic information, a pre-registration number will be sent to their registered mobile number and e-mail ID. By presenting this number at the registration counter in hospital, an OPD card will be issued to the patient. This card will be used by the patient for all subsequent visits to the hospital.
