Under the project, two lac patients will be delivered medicines at their doorstep.Two months' medicines stock of Hepatitis,TB and cardiac patients will be delivered at the doorstep of patients and the patients will be delivered medicines again after undergoing check up.I am striving to serve the masses under the guidance of Nawaz Sharif and Shehbaz Sharif.I want no one to remain deprived of treatment facility after 05 years in Punjab and the patients should not face any hassle in the hospitals. 32 field hospitals have been functionalized to provide treatment facilities to the people belonging to rural areas.I witnessed during my Bahawalpur visit that women were waiting for their treatment in the field hospital. The Clinic On Wheel project will be launched soon.We are establishing the first official state of the art cancer hospital in Lahore where patients will be provided free treatment of cancer disease.I have directed the Health Minister to functionalize cancer hospital Outdoor wing. The previous government halted PML-N's development projects.I want state of the art health facility across Punjab after 05 years and every city should have cardiology, paediatrics and cancer treatment facilities.Air ambulance project will be launched for the poor patients in coming few weeks.It is my dream that no patient wanders about in search of treatment and medicines."
