Three-tier medical-services in cities can result in better treatment at government-hospitals
Presently Out-Patient-Departments (OPDs) in big government-hospitals with attached medical-colleges, witness heavy rush on all days over-burdening and rather at times crashing medical services. Senior doctors needed especially for select serious and deserving patients are compelled to devote major portion of their OPD-timings on patients which do not need such specialized attention of senior doctors, and can rather be treated at primary medical centers.
Primary health-care centers can be set up in different parts of the city where attending doctors may recommend patients for secondary or tertiary stages of medical treatment. Secondary-stage medical-treatment can be recommended to normal government-hospitals where medical-colleges are not attached. Tertiary-stage patients requiring highest degree of medical attention then can be recommended to big hospitals with medical-colleges attached.
To start with on experimental basis, some select big hospitals in Delhi may adopt a three-tier system for medical care. A dedicated team of junior doctors and interns may first attend all the patients in big halls set up at these hospitals. They may recommend cases to other two higher categories of medical-treatment as per requirement of diseases of patients. Senior doctors of Professor-grade will then be able to devote full attention to patients really needing higher degree of medical-expertise. For getting desired results, senior doctors may have their cabins distinctly separate and away from halls providing primary health-care by junior doctors and medical-interns, so that people may not unnecessarily try to enter or peep into cabins of senior doctors presently set up at OPD-halls.
