New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will on Monday address government doctors via video-conference where he will talk about the Aam Aadmi Party dispensation's recent decision to waive user charges at its hospitals from February 01.
The Delhi CM will address doctors at 3 pm.
On Sunday, Kejriwal had said he would talk to the doctors “about implementing the new scheme for our hospitals, so as to also inform them about this new policy...".
"It is also important to tell them that the government has changed, the system has changed," he said.
As per the policy, patients at city government hospitals would not have to pay for medicines and diagnostic tests available there.
"I can tell you from own family experiences that many a time doctors at our own hospitals do not know that certain facilities are available there. So, this meeting will also serve the purpose of informing all our doctors about our new policy," Kejriwal said.
"People who will avail services at our hospitals can get medicines, and diagnostic tests like X-ray examinations, etc, done for free from February 1 ," he said.
