Assessorís Guidebook for Quality Assurance in Community Health Centres
(February 22, 2019)
Community Health Centres in the country are first port of call for availing specialised services in the Public Health System. Patients and beneficiaries being treated at Public Health Facilities should ideally get specialised services at these health facilities. However, due to various factors including vacancies not being filled, shortage of specialists, most of the CHCs at present are not providing specialised services. Nevertheless some of the CHCs, where blood transfusion facilities are available, provide Emergency Obstetric Care services, including Newborn Stabilisation Units (NBSUs), Caesarean Sections, and others. However, quality of care provided at such facilities has been a cause of concern. Concerted efforts are required for improving the quality of care, so that the community is assured of a minimum level of quality, while availing the services.
