Investigation ordered against 108 Ambulance Service


The Uttar Pradesh Department of Health launched an investigation against the 108 ambulance service and decided to match the list of beneficiaries for three months.

The Uttar Pradesh Department of Health has launched an investigation against the 108 Ambulance Service and decided to match the list of beneficiaries for a period of three months.

“It has come to the attention of the state that false details are being filled in as part of the 108 ambulance service to achieve the goal. It has therefore been decided to cross-check the patient details submitted by the company,” said an order from the office issued by the Director General of Medical Health, Dr. Ved Brat Singh.

Company officials said they were ready for the process. “Any of our patients’ details can be cross-checked and we have no problem. We will cooperate. In fact, many of our patients’ details that have been submitted to the health department are checked before payment and it could be a process similar,” said TVSK Reddy, senior vice president of GVK EMRI, the company that runs the 108 ambulances in Uttar Pradesh.

According to the order, the additional directors at the divisional level of the health department will form teams at the district level to verify the details of patients. The details provided by the company regarding patients, their mobile number and Adhaar numbers will be matched.

The survey should be completed within a week and should be prioritized, says the order which also has a format to match company details and mention if they were correct or not. The 108 ambulance is used to help critical patients get to the hospital from home or the scene of the accident. The probe will include data for February, March and April.
