The Health Ministry said that the program to administer medication to those receiving routine clinical treatment from government hospitals will begin today.
As a joint arrangement to provide medications for those who do not have adequate medicines for their everyday use, the program will begin today with the Postal Department.
The Ministry asked the patients to provide the correct name , address, clinic reference and telephone number for the distribution of medicine on the doorstep. Patients were asked to connect with the hospitals they are registered with through the phone and update the above information as soon as possible.
Your medication packages will be prepared by the hospital staff, showing your correct address with the clinic number, phone number and hospital name. During the curfew time, those packs will be sent to you by the postman daily.
The patients can also solicit help from their respective Grama Niladharis or Public Health Midwives to convey the correct details to the relevant hospitals.
