PESHAWAR: Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Health Department will launch Insaf Emergency Cab Services in the province to haul patients to hospitals.

The idea was discussed at a meeting of health department officials held with Health Minister Dr Hisham Inamullah Khan in chair on Thursday, said an official handout.

The meeting decided to start Insaf Emergency Cab Service at district and tehsil headquarter hospitals, rural health centres and the basic health units.

The emergency patients, in absence of dedicated ambulances, would be rushed to the hospitals, so that they may not face any problem in getting quick health services.

Health minister said Insaf Emergency Cab Services will benefit poor patients in remote areas of the province including merged districts. All doctors and other staff should work sincerely and serve the poor patients coming to the government hospitals.
