Chandigarh started private ambulance services reasonable prices
Chandigarh started private ambulance services reasonable prices. April 22, UT Health Secretary Yash Pal Garg, held a review meeting to provide a private ambulance to patients. He asked to start the service immediately in the city. Private ambulance providers partnered with National Ambulance Service (NAS) “112” to assist needy patients. Private ambulances will be available at reasonable prices. The UT Red Cross Society and NGOs/ private ambulance operators’ contact numbers are made available to the National Ambulance Service (NAS) operators in the Police Control Room.
The launch of the helpline for private ambulance operators will help residents to receive quality services at reasonable prices. Moreover, it will help patients to receive assistance in time.
