Bharati Vidyapeeth Hospital and Research Centre has announced to start an all-inclusive medical service for the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) community in the city which will not only have a dedicated outpatient department (OPD), but also a full-fledged super speciality providing services, including counselling, psychiatry, endocrinology, psychology and cosmetic surgery facilities. The hospital that plans to start the health centre early next year is in talks with Samapathik Trust, the city-based NGO that works towards the rights of LGBT community. Dr Sanjay Lalwani, medical director, Bharati Vidyapeeth Hospital and Research Centre, said, “The health services for LGBT community in our hospital will include OPD, a ward, a team of doctors and super speciality services. We will soon sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Samapathik Trust.”
