Hi  My father worked in

Hi 

My father worked in Indian railways. Regarding hospital service provided by railways is way very poor. No medicine is available in hospital no proper doctor are available more over there is no proper response. Instead of railway hospital they could tie-up with insurance policy like LIC medical insurance policy or star health insurance policy etc . So that patient can survive and take good medical treatment. from good hospital.
