The institute has also resumed its diabetes clinic along with antenatal and postnatal clinics for lactating mothers owing to the increased footfall. Both facilities will include clinical examination, diagnosis, laboratory investigations and prescription.
GIMS director Brigadier (retd) Dr RK Gupta said, “We are ready to start our general OPDs from Monday as the number of Covid cases have come down. Currently we are witnessing a surge in post-Covid complications such as black fungus in recovered or admitted patients. One of the main reasons behind the increase in mucormycosis cases is uncontrolled diabetes discovered in patients. Hence, we have decided to resume diabetes clinic services from Monday from 12 noon till 3pm.”
Clinical consultation, including history taking, examination, diagnosis, laboratory investigations, insulin and oral medication will be available at the diabetes clinic. Also, GIMS has decided to start its antenatal and postnatal clinics daily from Monday from 9am to 1pm. “We will provide a wide range of services including health check-up, blood tests, urine tests, pregnancy immunisation and family planning services,” Dr Gupta said.
