Indira Gandhi Memorial Hospital (IGMH), on Thursday, revealed that a National Diabetic Centre was established at Dharumavantha Hospital, which is located in the capital city of Male’.

According to IGMH, the centre, located on the third floor of the Dharumavantha Hospital, would function as a one-stop facility for all services required by diabetic patients.

Services provided include doctor consultations, clinical tests and consultation sessions provided by dieticians.

Further, IGMH revealed plans to establish a national network of diabetic centres across the country and utilise telemedicine to extend the centre’s services to all inhabited islands in the Maldives.
