Jain, who visited the clinic with Deputy Chief Minster Manish Sisodia, said, "The first neighborhood clinic would be ready by next week in Peeragarhi in east Delhi. The government is trying to set up neighborhood clinics in slum areas, unauthorized colonies and villages. The health department is aiming to improve services and reduce pressure on OPDs of existing hospitals and dispensaries. These clinics will help help ease the burden on government hospitals."
