AIIMS to start physical OPD services from June 25

AIIMS has provided 61,000 tele-consultations to follow-up patients to reduce the need for them to visit the facility during the lockdown.

The OPD services at All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS), New Delhi are all set to resume from June 25, after being shut for almost three months. The OPD services at the institute will initially begin with the follow-up patients and later will be extended to new cases.

“The date has been finalised in the meeting and the institute is soon going to issue a circular to all the departments. The OPD services will start for all the follow-up cases after providing the tele-consultation. All the departments be operational,” said a senior doctor from the hospital’s administration.

On March 18, the medical institute has sent an advisory to the OPD patients on their registered phone numbers, requesting them to postpone the OPD appointments. From March 20, the hospital curtained elective surgeries, and a screening area was developed for the patient having symptoms of respiratory tract infections.
