Telangana: Siddipet to get chemotherapy day care centre soon


Hyderabad: Cancer patients in Siddipet will soon have access to a chemotherapy facility at the local Government Hospital with the health department’s installation of equipment for a four-bed chemotherapy day care center.

Health minister T Harish Rao directed the health department to set up a facility in Siddipet. In the past, majority of patients had to travel to either the MNJ Cancer Hospital or the NIMS in Hyderabad for treatment, which required a lot of effort and money.

The health minister has taken this decision to ensure that the Cancer patients receive proper healthcare without having to put up with frequent long distance travel.

However, patients would have to go to NIMS or MNJ for first and second chemotherapy sessions. After the third session, they can avail the chemotherapy facilities at the Government Hospital.

According to Harish Rao, the treatment would be provided at no cost. In private hospitals, patients will need to spend between Rs 10,000 and Rs 20,000 for each session.
