Govt plans to launch ‘Doctor on Call’ service

New Delhi: The government plans to launch ‘Doctor on Call (DoC)’, a 24-hour seven-days-a-week national health helpline service for addressing the medical queries of the people telephonically.

The facility “will reduce the need to pay personal visit to healthcare centres and thus decrease the load on government hospitals,” Minister of State for Health Anupriya Patel informed the Lok Sabha on Friday.

It will also help in speedier consultations, increasing government-to-citizen interaction and vice versa, and building trust in government services and deliverables, the minister added.
