Mobile Health Units serve as a good example of the company’s resolve to ensure outreach for basic healthcare provision at people’s doorstep.
The primary focus of the MHU service is providing less expensive primary care alternatives than emergency rooms especially to those who can’t or won’t go to fixed-site clinics.
Most of the MHUs maintain a fixed staff but PHFMC management rotates the staff at each MHU after six to seven months. Staffing of MHU depends upon the level of care and type of services a particular MHU provides.
Currently, there are 6 MHUs deployed to provide mobile healthcare services across Punjab. These MHUs cover maximum number of patients and changes their location after every few hours, completing 3 shifts in a day.
