Often in the remote villages of India, GPs do not have access to basic facilities or expertise to evaluate and support a patient with suspected cardiac symptoms. The GPs end up referring the patients to a hospital with cardiac unit putting the patient's life at severe risk.

Dr. N. Prathap Kumar-led Meditrina Hospitals, with SIH cardiac care units across India unveils unique program #ConsultCardio , to address this serious concern and offer some solace to GPs and their patients from those remote areas of the country. Under this initiative, GPs and doctors at primary care centres and smaller clinics/hospitals in the rural and semi urban areas of India can reach out to the senior cardiologists at Meditrina Hospitals across India for an immediate consultation to render advanced care to their patients with cardiac symptoms.

A vast majority of such patients do not require surgical intervention, provided the patient is given necessary care under the supervision of a specialist, immediately after the manifestation of symptoms. With the advent of advanced communication tools and Internet connectivity across the rural India, it makes easier for doctors to reach out to the specialist for advisory and guidance for treatment, provided such a service is available.

This service requires pre-registration for the medical professionals at #ConsultCardio; once enrolled they are free to reach out to the senior cardiologists at Meditrina Hospitals whenever they are in need to consult regarding a cardiac patient, that too absolutely free of cost. Dedicated lines, email and instant messaging access would be provided to those who enrol into the program. Interested GPs/doctors can register with this service by visiting or by calling/messaging +91-751-040-01-00.

"#ConsultCardio is an extension of our commitment to cater to the underserved patients of rural and semi-urban India. Our team of specialists with more than 25,000 interventional procedures to their credit will render their expert advisory free of charges to the doctor community practicing across the length and breadth of India. This will enable GPs/doctors to better support their patients, saving valuable lives and hard-earned resources by providing right care at the right moment," says Dr. N. Prathap Kumar, Chairman and Managing Director for Meditrina Hospitals.

Cardiologists at Meditrina Hospitals and SIH Cardiac Centres at Kollam, Thiruvananthapuram, Palakkad, Jamshedpur, Maldives would be available for consultation at the launch phase of #ConsultCardio and specialists from SIH Cardiac Centres at Ambala Cantt., Panchkula, Faridabad and Gurgaon will be joining the consulting panel at the second phase.
