Robin also conveyed his Prayerful thanks to Nagaland Health Minister for helping for sponsoring refreshment, and transport to blood donors.
He also thanked to HOD AIIMS blood bank Dr Poonam Coshic, Dr Neha Bedi, Dr Dipti Ranjan and 14 members of blood bank for the assistance.
Taking up personally with Delhi Government Health ministry for their intervention as private hospitals in Delhi like Apollo, Max, Fortis do not accept blood from AIIMS NE blood bank but they would charge around Rs Ten thousands from patients per blood unit from their hospitals blood bank, this refusal of blood from AIIMS by private hospitals is incurring huge unnecessary expenditure from poor NE patients in these private hospitals.
