The Uttar Pradesh Government has joined hands with National Health Mission (NHM) to set up CT scan units at District level hospitals across the State that will offer free of cost service.
Currently, free diagnostic service in the State is available at three district hospitals. It will be be further available in another nine hospitals—Sant Kabir Nagar, Deoria, Shahjahanpur, Sitapur, Farrukhabad, Kaushambi, Mathura, Aligarh and Hathras—by this month, and in 16 more by March end.
The project is being implemented by HLL Lifecare, a Miniratna PSE under the Ministry of Union Health.
Various reports suggest that the Government would be providing a free-of-cost space for CT Imaging Center within these district hospitals, and HLL will invest on the CT Scanner Equipment and other associated equipment, undertaking the commissioning, maintenance, testing and reporting at the facility.
