Apollo Hospitals, one of the largest integrated healthcare providers in the world, is now partnering with leading mobile telecommunications provider, Airtel Nigeria, to enhance access to world-class healthcare services to the people of Nigeria.
Airtel and Apollo Hospitals are cooperating under the partnership: “Ask Apollo.”
This would enable video consultation by Airtel Nigeria Premier customers with Apollo Hospitals doctors in India with prior appointment.
In addition to this service, Apollo Hospitals would also work with Airtel Nigeria on creating health awareness with a particular emphasis on preventive healthcare.
According to Dr. Hari Prasad, the CEO of Apollo Hospitals Group, Apollo Hospitals and Airtel Nigeria are taking advantage of the technology revolution to get the people of Nigeria closer to world-renowned doctors from Apollo Hospitals.
Speaking on the initiative, the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Airtel Nigeria, Segun Ogunsanya, noted that the partnership with Apollo Hospitals will not only make it possible for Airtel Premier customers to have access to experienced healthcare practitioners and life-saving information, it also offers convenience and a platform for improved quality of life.
“This is another demonstration of Airtel’s commitment to enhancing the quality of life of Nigerians through innovative products and services. Because we see our customers as more than just a connection, we have taken this further step to provide them access to excellent medical attention, which they ordinarily would have travelled abroad for,” Ogunsanya stated.
Airtel Premier Customers interested in availing these services may call 09022222006 or 09022222007.
These consultation facilities will be available at Diamond Helix Medical Assistance Limited, Plot 8, Block 91, Iron Bar Street, Off Providence Street, Lekki Phase-1, Lagos, every Saturday at noon for three hours.
This service offers 10 per cent discount on the consultation fees and has the additional advantage of five per cent to 10 per cent discount on Emirates Airline flights, if a customer wishes to proceed to India for further medical attention.
