The Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) will hold a trial run of its satellite centre OPD at Sangrur, ahead of its formal inauguration. According to senior officials, this is likely to happen sometime next week.
During the trial run, doctors will examine patients. The PGI has already hired doctors for temporary OPDs and for the rest, it will send its doctors to run the service. PGI spokesperson Manju Wadwalkar said that a trial run will happen before the inauguration but could not confirm a date.
Senior PGI officials told The Indian Express: “We have already deployed the staff and required equipment. The dry run will help us recognise the problems that we could face. So far no date has been decided for the formal inauguration.”

The inauguration, which was earlier scheduled for October 2, was postponed as Union Health Minister J P Nadda cancelled his visit to the state due to tension at the border with Pakistan. On Tuesday, a review meeting was held by PGI Director Prof Y K Chawla, which was attended by senior faculty members.
The institute, officials said, was prepared for the inauguration on October 2. “The temporary arrangement was made for starting the OPD,” said an official. “We are now waiting for the new dates.”
