Project 7 – To provide medical support

For some years we have been providing support for a doctor to visit the village every 10 days at a cost of £36/m. Before this the villagers had to see the doctor in the town Chirala, 5 kms away.

In 2013 we discovered that this was only a partially trained doctor so Vinay is planning to institure a monthly visit by a GP type doctor - all be it at a higher cost!

Medical 1

The doctor can write prescriptions that can be collected and paid for within the town. He can refer villagers to the local hospitals.

A very few inhabitants of other villagers attend by agreement. The doctor records each patient in his notebook typically he sees around 60 patients at each visit. Children under 10 are taken to the local hospital. Generally it appears that there is good availability of Government and Private hospital care in Chirala– both charge. BCG injections are provided free. Hep B is available at £10. Polio – the government use teachers to visit villages regularly to provide vaccines to young children.

The surgery is now run out of The Elizabeth-Ann Home.
