New Delhi: 6th January 2012
Poor patients haven’t been able to reap benefits of the free treatment provision in top private hospitals in the city. The monitoring committee looking after the implementation has faulted the government policies vis-à-vis lack of publicity and failure by state-run health institutions to refer the needy. In a letter written to the Directorate of Health Services, Delhi government, committee member Ashok Agarwal has claimed there is complete absence of information to the economically weaker section (EWS) category patients about the facility due to which most beds reserved for them remain unoccupied.
