The divisional as well as zonal railway hospitals have been given time till the end of this year to install CCTV cameras on a priority basis.

Goyal, who visited the Northern Railway Central Hospital on Monday, had conducted an extensive review of the healthcare system of the national transporter on August 29.

In a set of instructions sent to the general managers of all the zones on September 14, the Railway Board has asked them to ensure that these systems are put in place. There are a total of 125 railway hospitals in the country.

The board has said the wifi connection will be given to facilitate the doctors and patients to exchange medical records, provide ease in consultation, enable tele-video chat, conference with specialists at other centres for a better overall patient-care.

The railway zones and divisions have been given time till December 31 to complete the work. Since Goyal took over as the railway minister, the stress has been on installation of CCTV cameras and providing wifi connections at the stations across the railway network.
