GURUGRAM: Medicines and diagnostic exams shall be available within the city at a lower prices than present ones.
The MCG, at the side of the well being division and a pharma corporate, will on Saturday release Haryana's first such fair-price pharmacy — Affordable Medicines and Reliable Implants for Treatment (Amrit) — in Gurugram, the place medications, specifically for most cancers and cardiovascular diseases, shall be available at prices thrice lower than the market fee.

Union well being minister JP Nadda will inaugurate the Amrit pharmacy at Mahaveer Chowk close to the Gurugram bus stand and the diagnostic laboratory in Sector 39, officials said on Friday. This is part of the Union govt's plan to open 300 such pharmacies around the nation.

"All medicines at the pharmacy will be sold at subsidised rates, upto 60% of the MRP," said an MCG official. "Anyone with a prescription will be able to make purchase at the pharmacy. And though it will stock drugs for all diseases, it would especially focus on easy availability of medicines for cancer and cardiovascular diseases," he added.

Though the diagnostic laboratory shall be inaugurated on Saturday, it is going to be operational from April. "All kinds of diagnostic test facilities will be available at the centre. The rates for the lab will be the same as applicable under the Central Government Health Scheme," said the official.

The first Amrit pharmacy was once opened at AIIMS in Delhi in 2015. The undertaking was once introduced via the Centre in affiliation with state-owned HLL Lifecare limited. However, in many puts, these pharmacies had been reported to be inefficient in handling the calls for. And given Gurugram's dimension, many say, it could prove to be the same case right here as neatly.
