Patient Welfare Committees in Every Government Hospital: Satyendar Jain, Health Minister

The Delhi government on April 16 declared its plans to set up patient welfare committees at all government hospitals to provide proper medical facilities and treatment to the patients. The patient welfare committees will ensure community participation and monitor functioning of health care facilities.

Satyendar Jain, Health Minister, said, "The role of patient welfare committees will be to deal with day to day public grievances and resolve these issues at local level. These committees will take decisions on issues like lack of medicines, cleanliness and treatment on the spot."


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."
