Waiting period for surgeries in government hospitals less than one month


Dr KK Aggarwal    29 April 2018

If you live in Delhi and are entitled for Delhi Government services and if you need a surgery and the date given to you is beyond one month, you can get a referral to empanelled 42 private hospitals and get the surgery done there.

The list of hospitals empanelled and the types of surgeries are available on website of Delhi Arogya Kosh. All these hospitals are NABH/ CGHS or Delhi Government Employees Health Scheme (DGEHS) registered.

There are 24 such Delhi Government hospitals and they are authorized to refer to private hospitals.

This is a very good initiative by the government as most surgeries can now be done within one month window. The problem of not getting dates in a government hospitals will be practically over. All emergency surgeries in any way will need to be handled by the government set ups. Other states should follow the same.
