Chandigarh, October 30, 2020: The PGIMER has been providing Emergency Outpatient Services round the clock during this COVID 19 pandemic.
The Institute is also providing regular elective outpatient services through tele-consultation and in physical form for cancer patients, obstetrics and those requiring semi-urgent medical or surgical care.
The primary aim of PGIMER is to prevent exposure of patients with comorbidities to COVD-19 infection.
In view of the current dip in COVID 19 patients, the institute will attempt to scale up the elective outpatient services.
Now also, tele-consultation will continue to remain the initial point of contact of patients and doctors.
Patients will be evaluated first through tele-consultation.
Only those requiring further evaluation and examination will be called to the OPD by appointment from November 2, 2020 onwards.
The date and time of appointment will be intimated to the patients through SMS.
This will ensure requisite physical distancing amongst patients/attendants visiting the OPDs.
Overcrowding can lead to an outbreak of COVID 19 amongst this susceptible population.
Hence, Physical OPDs will be run through the appointment system only and patients coming without appointment will not be entertained.
The above protocols will be followed in all OPDs of PGIMER – New OPD, Advanced Eye Centre, Advanced Cardiac Centre, Advanced Paediatrics Centre, DDTC & OHSC.
The numbers for tele-consultation are
