The medicine distribution procedure will be like of AIIMS (All India Institute Of Medical Science). Delhi Health Minister Satyander Jain referred to the report submitted by the team who visited AIIMS to scrutinize the medicine distribution procedure and found their system more suitable.

'Unlike AIIMS, the Delhi government will also start distributing free medicines at five of its state owned hospitals which include: DDU, Ambedkar hospital, LNJP hospital, JTB hospital and Lal Bahadur Shastri hospital.

“There will be a separate centre in each of these hospital having 20-25 counters from where patients can collect their medicines,” Jain said.
In an easy procedure where the patient just has to carry the prescription to the centre to get his/her token. Then, according to the token number the patient will have to go to the respective counter to collect the medicines.

Satyander Jain also added the government is taking all required steps to provide free medicines at all government hospitals. The Health Department has also activated a number (8745051111) for those who are not getting the required medicines on time.

On the said number the patient will just have to send his name and names of the required medicines, the server will revert providing the estimated time by which the medicines would be available.

The government is also planning to launch a mobile app through which the consumers can upload the picture of the prescription and the availability of desired medicine will be reported to them.

“There is a need for improvement in the medicine buying procedure at government hospitals. Those medicines which have minimum usage have been bought at bulk,” Jain added.
