Delhi to install 120 machines for free dialysis

The Delhi government Monday decided to install 120 dialysis machines in six state-run hospitals to provide free dialysis and allied procedures to the poor and identified categories of patients.

The decision was taken at a cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit.

“The government while fulfilling its earlier assurance to provide free dialysis procedure for the poor has given its nod to a proposal to set up state-of-the-art dialysis centres in six Delhi government’s major hospitals,” said Dikshit.
