Following PGIMER’s move of reopening OPDs, Government Medical College and Hospital, Sector 32 has also decided to resume physical OPDs from November 2.
• In the first phase, GMCH will reopen only five OPDs – psychiatry, pulmonary medicine, paediatrics, gynaecology and radiotherapy.
• Departments have been asked to submit the number of patients can be provided physical consultation daily, keeping in view the safety norms.
• Tele-consultation services being provided to patients will continue.
“Patients evaluated through tele-consultation and requiring physical examination will be called to the OPDs through an appointment system. The medical record department will schedule the appointments, as per recommendations of the department. This is based on the pattern of the PGIMER,” said Dr Jasbinder Kaur, acting director of GMCH.
