The initial set of services includes specialist nursing, nutrition, counselling, physiotherapy and coaching.

CEO and Co-Chairperson of Dr. Reddy's Laboratories G.V. Prasad and his wife Co- Founder and Managing Trustee of Dr. Reddy's Foundation Anuradha, formally opened the facility.

'Clinics' Managing Director Sonali Srungaram said she understood the need for this after having started CIPHER Healthcare, which delivers large prevention drives.

"There is a wind of change in the landscape of because more people are able to survive Those with a recurrence live longer. What is needed is a care centre that eases their burden and that's how Clinics took birth," she said.

Sonali's pan India 'Helpline' has already benefited thousands of people seeking information about the subject and guidance to experience the joys of everyday living.

CIPHER was initially launched by the founder with an investment of Rs 1 crore. Last year, an initial friends and family round of funding raised Rs 0.75 crore. Currently, Rs 3.5 crores is being raised from Angel Investors and existing investors to fund the first Clinics, she said.
