Tata 1mg recently announced free health checkups for over 1,000 doctors across India. The company is also commending 500 doctors in the month of July as part of a nationwide campaign to recognize and appreciate the contribution of doctors to India’s healthcare industry, the company said.
“Doctors spread across various hospitals in cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Kolkata, Pune, Hyderabad, Chennai and Dehradun have been invited to avail a Free Full Silver Comprehensive Health Checkup, the Comprehensive Health Checkup Package of Tata 1mg. The full body screening helps to assess the overall health of the body and gives clues to potential disorders and deficiencies at an early stage. Participating doctors would be checked on more than 70 health parameters, including liver function test, kidney function test, thyroid profile, glucose, lipid profile, vitamin D and vitamin B12,” a the company said on Monday.
According to the company’s press release, the company also extended this invitation to the network of its own doctors as a sign of appreciation. Participating doctors can take advantage of this offer at their convenience via Tata 1mg’s expert home sample collection fleet during the month of July and receive their reports from Tata 1mg Labs, India’s trusted diagnostic chain , he added.
“Physicians are exposed to several health risks, not only due to long working hours and exposure to potentially hazardous conditions, but also due to stress and psychological morbidity. They are vulnerable to the same acute and chronic illnesses as the patients they treat. Yet, in the practice of their profession, they often neglect their own health and do not give themselves the same empathy and care that they give to their patients. This is a matter of great concern as doctors are national assets as evidenced by their tireless service during the pandemic. At Tata 1mg we think it is very important to protect the protector. This nationwide campaign by us to check the health of doctors is a way to express our gratitude for their selfless service and to protect them from any disease or morbidity by detecting symptoms early,” said Dr. Prashant Nag, Head of clinical pathology, Tata 1mg Labs in a report.
Meanwhile, the company is also praising more than 500 doctors across the country including Tata Memorial Hospital (TMH) in Jamshedpur and Tata Medical Center (TMC) in Kolkata.
