Sometimes ambulance is not available, sometimes treatment in hospital
Dial 108 ambulance service is operating in Madhya Pradesh to take the patients to the hospital in case of emergency. This facility was started during the tenure of former Chief Minister Babulal Gaur. A large number of ambulances equipped with first aid facilities were sent to every division in every district of the state. The operation of the vehicles is in private hands. Sometimes the lack of vehicles is argued for not reaching the ambulance on time, sometimes the victims do not get timely treatment in the government hospital.
The government had claimed to increase the ambulance
It is said that in an event in the month of April this year, it was claimed on behalf of the government that the number of dial 108 ambulances has increased from 1445 to 2052. The number of advanced life support vehicles has increased from 75 to 167 and basic life support ambulances from 531 to 835. Despite this, the health services on which 220 crores are being spent annually, the victims are not able to reach the hospital on time. In many places, people still have to go to the hospital by other means to save their lives.
