Mukhyamantri Nidan Yojana in Gujarat
This flagship scheme by the state govt. of Gujarat was launched in the 7th of April, 2016 to revise and improve the quality of health services that are presently being offered by the government for the people of the state. Under this scheme, the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Gujarat has announced that free improved and quality medical facilities and treatment options will be given to the people residing in both the rural as well as urban areas of the state. Under this provision, the health centers will be equipped with modern treatment facilities and the patients will not have to visit private hospitals for their better treatment.
Free and quality medical tests for all
All the govt. colleges, govt. hospitals and health centers in rural as well as urban areas will be equipped with technologies and medical equipments to perform almost all types of medical tests. Be it complex medical tests for kidney, regular blood and urine tests or costly typhoid tests, every medical facility will be capable to perform the tests for free and will serve the state people. People will no longer have to go to private clinics and spend fortunes to perform the medical tests for their treatment. There is a condition in the health centers, not only in Gujarat, but also in almost all states that although the medical centers have treatment facilities, but the patients do not get medical test facilities in every govt. hospitals and have to rely on private ones. That’s why this scheme is launched to provide free quality medical tests for all.
