The Railway Ministry on Tuesday signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Ministry of Ayush to augment the existing system of Ayush in Railway Hospitals.
The AYUSH health services would be scaled up in five Railway Hospitals -- B R Singh Hospital in Eastern Railway, Perambur Railway Hospital Southern Railway, Central Hospital of Northern Railway, JR Hospital in Western Railway and Central Hospital of Northeast Frontier Railway.
The agreement was signed by Principal Executive Director/Health Dr Gajendra Kumar, on behalf of the Railways and Advisor Dr Manoj Nesari from AYUSH Ministry.
Speaking on the occasion Minister of State for Railways Manoj Sinha said that the ensuring wellness of Railway employees was of prime concern.
The traditional knowledge of AYUSH systems could be harnessed to particularly help the vast majority of Railway staff who were required to put in stressful field duties on site. – UNI
