Community Health Centres (CHCs) work with General Practitioners (GPs) to take care of patients with chronic illnesses like diabetes.
Together, both GPs and community health centres keep an eye out for the early signs of disease. Taking action quickly can protect you before a disease worsens.
For better coordination and continuity of care, you need be referred by a GP, who will make appointments with the nearest CHC. Test results will be sent to the referring GPs for review and to follow-up with you. All services are by appointment only.
Helps patients plan diets to suit their medical conditions.
Detects early signs of eye damage from diabetes to prevent complications that can lead to vision loss or blindness.
Diagnoses and treats disorders associated with feet and ankles.
You can visit a Community Health Centre only when a doctor has given you a referral.
