It also functions as an information center for youth and provide counselling, psycho-social support, career advice services as well as events in which we invite professional speakers.
Specialised Health Centre
Due to the lack of medical support, the NaraTika CLC hosts a medical clinic with emergency management services.
The clinic is equipped with a doctor, pharmacy, observation area, pathology lab and x-ray chambers. Regular staff members such as an on duty general practitioner and nurses will be available.
The centre will also have a day observation room for in-patients.
In future we will also have specialist clinics, such as gynaecologist, surgeon, dentist, cardiologist, dermatologist, ultrasonologist, paediatrician and other medical staff as identified by the community.
We also arrange an ambulance service which will bring patients from surrounding area to the Specilised Health Centre.
The center will offer first aid or emergency services but make referrals to other hospitals for long term health conditions.
The location of the CLC has potentially space for helicopter landing pad. This means in the event of a disaster with mass casualties, people can first arrive to the center and then get rescued by helicopter.
In addition we plan to install telemedicine in the center. This will facilitate the remote diagnosis and treatment of patients by means online consultation with specialist in Kathmandu.
The center will run emergency services 24 hours for all days.
Outpatient clinic service will open during office hours, 10:00-17:00 and will be closed on Saturday.
The specialist will visit the center once a month.
In total 12 specialist visit per year.
