70 new ambulances for CATS

Delhi has moved ahead in providing quality health services, said chief minister Sheila Dikshit at the launch of 70 new ambulances in the city on Monday. 

 The fleet of new ambulances was acquired by the Centralised Accident and Trauma Services (CATS). With their induction, the total number of ambulances available with the CATS has risen to 101. It was announced that 50 more ambulances will be added soon.  Dikshit described this as “another milestone which would go a long way in saving precious lives of those critical patients hovering between life and death.”  Dikshit added that an alert and efficient ambulance system capable of responding to various types of medical emergencies will have a favourable effect on achieving goals related to increasing institutional and safe delivery, reduction of infant mortality rate and maternal mortality rate.   Union health minister Ghulam Nabi Azad said it was  a patient friendly initiative.
