Health, Medical and Family Welfare Department Principal Secretary M.T. Krishna Babu has said that the 104 helpline will be strengthened in a week and will be used to address complaints related to the health department by the public.

According to a release, Mr. Babu on Thursday conducted a video conference with all the District Collectors.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Babu said public could dial 104 and lodge their complaints related to Arogyasri, ambulances, demand for excess money by ambulance drivers and others. He said there would be a swift response to the complaints.
