J&K Government gave a big move to the health and relief services with the launch of a toll-free number ‘102’ to avail ambulance service and GPS fitting on around 800 ambulances in the state.

Minister of State for Health, Shabir Ahmad Khan said:

“Around 800 ambulances across the state have been fitted with GPS so as to track the movement of every referral vehicle in the state.”

Khan said, adding that one control room has been established in each district hospital of the state for this purpose.

The Minister said currently the toll-free number can be availed for ambulance services but in a major healthcare reform, the state’s medical department will soon launch other services included under the National Rural Health Mission on this number, with special focus on providing immediate medical care to the needy in rural areas.

These services would include timely medical care during health emergencies and accidents with the main focus on maternal and child health related emergencies.
