What will Dr Dolittle be doing at UP Primary Health Centres (PHCs)???
Lucknow: Dr Dolittle is here again after two decades ! No, don't be mistaken , it is not any remake or franchise of 1998 hollywood fantasy comedy film starring Eddie Murphy. This Dr Dolittle is not even remotely connected with the films and belongs to a different genre.
Got confused ! Yes, this Dr Dolittle is a new wonder medical diagnostic robotic machine which will do your pathological testings, give the findings and even dispense the medicines at one click . This whole process will take hardly 12 minutes and the machine named Dr Dolittle costs about Rs 12 lakh.
Uttar Pradesh government is going to instal these machines in 500 Primary Health Centres (PHCs) of the state in phased manner to augment the medical services of the state, Health Minister Sidharth Nath Singh said here on Thursday. He said this hi-tec technology will not only save time but also the manpower to a greater extent.
The budgetary sanction for this have been through and installation will start soon, he added.
