There are 38 hospitals under the Delhi government. Each patient welfare committee will be headed by Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) of the respective constituency, who will get an office in the hospital to address patients' grievances.

Ten district committees have been formed to monitor the functioning of the dispensaries and other health programs in Delhi.

Jain said, "These district committees will ensure that the dispensaries across the city have all the essential medicines and cater to the medical needs of the public."
