Kerala Minister for Public Works G Sudhakaran today hailed the efforts of HLL Lifecare Ltd in providing affordable life-saving drugs and medical equipment to needy patients.
Inaugurating the new HLL Pharmacy and Surgicals and HLL Opticals outlet at the Alappuzha Government TD Medical College, Sudhakaran said high cost of medicines and medical equipment has been a point of discussion in Kerala. Moreover, government medical colleges are showing their unprofessionalism by guiding patients to private hospitals, he said.
However, efforts of HLL have been making the change in medical industry by making it more professional," he said. The store is the 12th to open in Kerala as part of a chain under a pioneering joint venture of the central PSU HLL and the state government.
HLL Pharmacy & Surgicals offers surgical implants and other products like medicines, disposables, stents and pacemakers at 10 to 40 per cent discount.
