The SAFE OPD initiative is another step towards providing superlative patient experience to those visiting our centres for consultations and tests and a reassurance of the safety of our premises. We have put in place elaborate measures which will reduce the threat of infection transmission and aim to dispel fear in the mind of those visiting our centres", Apollo Cradle & Children's Hospital Director Medical Services Dr Ajay H Gangoli said.
