Hyderabad, 12 Nov 2016 : In a step to discourage people from postponing their Doctors’ visits for lack of change due to demonetization of Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 currency notes, Aster Prime Hospitals Hyderabad has decided to offer free out-patient (OP) consultation for one week.
“It’s an unprecedented, bold move from the government to reform economy and curtail black money. However, it also had a huge impact on the general public more so on the hospital patients. While in-patients can deposit money in our bank account, it’s the OP patients who were affected the most” said Dr. G. Satish Reddy, Managing Director, Aster Prime Hospitals, Hyderabad.
Keeping in mind the hardships of the patients, the Director’s of Aster Prime Hospitals, Hyderabad decided not to send any patient back from both Ameerpet and Kukatpally branches and offer its OP Consultation services absolutely FREE from 14th November 2016 to 19th November 2016.
“We understand that this is an unforeseen circumstance and as practicing Doctors our first duty is towards our patients, we cannot deny treatment to patients at such circumstances. Any patient walking into our OPD will not be charged a single rupee by us. Denying treatment to our patients for lack of change is unacceptable to us said in a press release by Dr. Satish Reddy.
