Evening clinic at press club continues

Continuing the mission for healthcare to its member-journalists along with their dependents, northeast India’s pioneer media organization Guwahati Press Club (GPC) invites Assam’s well known Nemcare Hospital to conduct the next evening OPD (outpatient department) clinic on 1st July. At least two physicians (cardiology and medicine) from the hospital will be available for free consultations at press club between 3 pm and 5 pm on Saturday.

The participants of 17th June clinic, which was conducted by the city based Emerge Diagnostic, may bring their blood reports with glucose, creatinine, cholesterol, bilirubin & haemoglobin parameter to consult with the attending physicians on next camp, said a GPC statement. The last evening clinic, organized under the series of ‘Evening with a Doctor’ at the press club premises, was conducted by Dr Shubhra Kinkor Goswami and Dr Bijuli Goswami from Sight First Eye-Clinic, where over 45 media workers were present to get their eyes checked by the specialists and also received necessary consultations on everyday use of digital screenings.

The unique healthcare initiative was launched by eastern India’s pioneer pressmen’s organization GPC last year, where well-known institution Dispur Hospitals extended initial support to raise a doctor’s chamber at the club premises in August 2016. The premier hospital successfully managed by Dr Jayanta Bardoloi also conducted the first episode of the media clinics.

Till date, practicing doctors from Apollo Chennai Hospital, Medanta-the Medicity Hospital, Manipal Bangalore Hospital, Down Town Hospitals, GNRC Hospitals, Wintrobe Hospital, Narayana Super-Specialty Hospitals, Swagat Super-Surgical Institute, Barthakur Clinic, Government Ayurvedic College etc have attended the camps. The 8 July camp is scheduled for Fortis Hospital Bangalore.
