As the kidney racket throws light on illegal clinics running across the country, Union Health and Family Welfare Minister Anbumani Ramadoss said the Centre would soon bring in a law to regulate both private and public clinics.
Union Health and Family Welfare Minister Anbumani Ramadoss said that the Clinical Establishment Act is before a standing committee of Parliament and would be soon introduced. Under the act, all public and private clinics across the country will have to register themselves.
While inaugurating a Diagnostic Centre set up as a public private partnership venture between Hindustan Latex, a mini ratna enterprise under the Ministry of Health, and Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS) Ramadoss said that all the clinics across the country should improve the quality and standard of the services. The ministry wanted to provide quality care and health related services to the beneficiaries of CHGS.
HINDLABS is equipped with most modern lab facility and will deliver reliable, accurate and quality diagnostic services to CGHS beneficiaries at CHGS rates. The same services will also be provided to patients outside the CGHS at affordable rates.
CGHS is one of the primary health care delivery networks of the Ministry of Health and Family welfare, which delivers economical and quality medical care facilities to Central government employees across the country. The project, if successful, will be scaled up in the coming six months period in the national capital.
