Wishing all our Readers of The Prescription a very Happy New Year !
Let this coming year bring in good health for one and all !!!
Though “The Prescription” continues to highlight the various forms of healthcare negligence, fake drug menace, extortion, alerts, notices related to medicines all over India but in this New Year it also brings in some good news on positive progresses in safeguarding health of the common man with the new National Health portal, Online Patient registration, revamp of Jago Grahak Jago campaign, drafting of new Healthcare policy, uniform code for marketing of pharmaceuticals in this issue. Seeing the steps taken by the Indian govt and its subsidiary healthcare vigilance bodies we see a new dawn in the safety of patients and their accessibility to quality healthcare.
