The Health Curative Department was established in 1963. The main objective of this department is to provide out-door medical consultation and medication to the city dwellers, and the working population of the City of Colombo.
The Health Curative Department is responsible in providing health curative services through 39 centres in the city of Colombo. This includes 33 Out Patient's Clinics one staff Clinic, 3 Eye Clinics & 3 Dental Clinics. Seven Services are conducted in the evening, to cater to the working population of the City. These services include free medical consultation and supply of drugs to the patients.
These clinics treat an average of 850,000 patients for a year which amounts to a daily average of 3500 patients.
Medical Case Histories of the patients are maintained at the respective Clinics, and these clinics function as family practitioners.
The medical services provided at these clinics have now been upgraded with modern medical equipment as well as a lager selection of drugs.
Most of the Clinics were housed in old buildings donated by philanthropists, in the past. We are now working on a programme to construct specially designed Modern Clinics to provide a more streamlined service to the community.
The Health Curative Department, with the changes carried out and the proposed improvements, would make a significant impact on the services it provides to the community, by the Colombo Municipal Council.
