Walk-in registration in GMCH 32 OPD from 20th September. It is specified that the patients visiting OPD for registration or to get doctor’s advice must have a COVID test report. Nevertheless, if the patient comes under emergency cases then he can get the coronavirus test done after getting the necessary treatment and consultation from the doctor.
The walk-in OPD registrations in GMCH-32 have been started from Monday, that is, 20th September. The decision to re-initialize the OPD services in the hospital is taken by the UT administration.

As per the officials, the coronavirus test of the patients will be done in the OPD services at GMCH-16 and GMCH-32 hospitals.
As per the rules, “it is necessary to get the COVID test done before visiting the OPD services. However, in case a patient requires emergency treatment or met with an accident can get all the medical facilities beforehand and a corona test after that stage.”
By installing the bar-code scanners and printers are being installed by the IT department that enables the online OPD registration for GMCH-16 to be done at all the e-Sampark Centers in the city. In the next 15 days, the whole work is expected to be done.
