‘Dial an Ambulance’ from Aug 15

Jaipur: Come August 15 and the state would be gifted with a novel scheme in the form of 'Dial an Ambulance' wherein patients can dial 108 or 104 for a paid service of an ambulance along with the emergency services which remain intact.
Joining the fleet of 1,200 ambulances being run under the 108 and 104 banner, the health department is gearing up to handover 200-odd base ambulances available at the community health centre (CHC) levels to GVK EMRI which will run them in the state.
Before being handed over to GVK EMRI, the ambulances are being readied with all the required apparatuses. These ambulances would be called "Jeevan Vahini" and would be run under the dial an ambulance scheme.
The key feature of these ambulance scheme would be that these would be booked through an online system wherein a seeker would have to dial 108 or 104 to pre-book them.
"These ambulances can be booked before the anticipated time of the need such as in cases of expected pregnancy date, or taking a patient to hospital on a
said date or time or to
take elderly patients to hospitals for check ups or treatment. All these facilities would be available under the scheme called dial an ambulance wherein a user can
book it dialling numbers 108 and 104," Naveen Jain, Mission Director, NHM, said.
He also added that these ambulances would be booked through an automated online system and would be run by the GVK EMRI which is also running the 108 ambulances in the state.
Also, there would be a tight scrutiny of ambulances which are defunct or need overhaul.
