Appointments can be booked through online registration system for consultation as well as interactive voice response system. Patients will be screened for influenza before admission to OPD. Only after this, the patient will be given admission in OPD.
AIIMS has also sought a list of doctors from all clinical heads, who will be appointed for physical consultations. The phone numbers of those doctors have also been asked to provide. However, it has also been made clear that no appointment will be booked for the evening specialty clinic.AIIMS had already started OPD service for patients who were seeking medical advice. Along with the patients who were already seeking medical advice, new patients were also being given appointments for OPD, but in a very limited number. AIIMS stopped its OPD services from March 24 to control the corona outbreak for the first time in its history since its inception. This was done to use the available resources against Corona.
Treatment of corona infectives has been underway at AIIMS Trauma Center and NCI Jhajjar for almost three months. After the discontinuation of OPD services, doctors were giving counseling on the phone to the patients who were taking counseling. Earlier, in a letter issued by AIIMS regarding life-saving surgery, it was said that this will happen from March 21.
