AIIMS OPD likely to be launched soon


AIIMS OPD likely to be launched soon

Tribune News Service

Bathinda, December 1

After breaching many deadlines in the past, the AIIMS OPD here is all set to be launched soon. The prestigious institute’s first batch of MBBS has already started at its transit campus of Guru Gobind Singh Medical College in Faridkot.

According to sources, the construction work of the OPD block is almost complete and doctors too have gradually started joining their duties. The sources said a total of 50 staff members have been appointed for the OPD, of which 35 doctors have already taken up the assignment.

“They are busy setting up their respective departments. The other staff members too are also expected to join them soon,” said the sources, adding that the facility may soon be inaugurated. The recruitment of faculty members for various departments is being done by the Post-Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER), Chandigarh, which has been roped in by the Union government. The testing of equipment meant for diagnostic tests like X-ray and ultrasound machines is also underway. Earlier, the OPD was scheduled to get functional from September 1.

Meanwhile, when a The Tribune team visited the AIIMS campus yesterday, they were told that the entry of media was barred until they get the permission from the “competent authorities”. Incidentally, there is no hurdle in the entry of mediapersons to the AIIMS premises whenever Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal visits the site to take stock of the project.

The delay in the prestigious project has often led to a war of words between Harsimrat and the ruling Congress leaders in the past. Harsimrat had been accusing the state government of deliberately not extending the necessary clearances to the project in a bid to deny her the credit for the big ticket project.
