This is a special support initiative for dialysis patients. Sahayak supports these patients and their families by looking into any health issues they may be facing and resolving their doubts and apprehensions. These voluntary support groups were formed by Fortis Hospital, Mohali and Fortis Escorts Hospital, Jaipur. Through this programme quarterly meetings are organised, where senior doctors of the facility, interact informally with patients and members share their thoughts with each other. Often experts are invited to interact with patients and update them on the latest developments in the field of dialysis. These meetings also serve as a platform for the patients to share their lives with each other.
Last year over 350 people including a number of dialysis patients joined the support groups in Mohali and Jaipur.
