Today we had a review meeting at my Sevalaya office with Govt Doctors & officers to discuss the ground situation of availability of beds and ambulances and implementation of Ayushman Bharat and Mahatma Phule Yojana for Covid patients. The meeting was attended by Dr Vaibhav Pawar, Sr.District Head Konkan region, Dr Dhananjay Patil, Mumbai District Coordinator, Dr. Ravindra Jagatkar, Thane District Cordinator and officials of ESIS hospital. We pointed out to them that beds availability to the common people is a big problem. People have to roam from one hospital to another to get admitted. Private Hospitals are overcharging Covid patients from testing to treatment. In this the non covid patients are also affected. We urged the officials to ensure that people get benefit of the Govt schemes and beds are made available to them quickly. ESIS hospital officials were advised to restart OPD and were reassured that their issue of leakage would be resolved in due course.
