Diwali is approaching and is almost here, still the season of illness is going on and it seems that this is going spoil diwali of many. Patients are very much feared and are quite apprehensive about usual not availability of doctors during festival season.
Many of doctors are packing bags and moving on holidays, as there are quite over worked all the time and wanting to have a much needed break.
Minor aliments make patients confined to home and spoil their diwali.This year again the season of various illness like malaria, dengue etc, is at its peak.
Looking to interest of the society and after getting suggestion from our patients, we doctors have decided to start a medical helpline for any needy patients. We are a group of family physicians, this initiative is taken by “TheFamilyClinic”,Ahmedabad Family Physician Association.
There will be central helpline number which any body can call to get assistance and find out doctors in there near by area. We are having list of family physicians who are present in the city in diwali holidays.
We will be having a list of doctor area wise so that patients can be guided in their area only.
Apart from this year we expanded out network and now having a list of Pathology labs, radiology clinics, ECG service, pharmacy stores etc. We are having almost complete net work across Ahmedabad.
We are taking help from technology also. We will publish these details on our website www.afpa.co.in and face book page of thefamilyclinlc. The patients even can post their minor aliments queries on this page and get solutions for the same.
We have divided Ahmedabad in 5 zones and there will be coordinator for each area. The coordinator looks after the area and will be having list of available facilities in that area.
We are also having list of consultants in corporate hospitals, so that in case of any major emergency patients can directly can be guided to the near by hospital without wasting time.
