Tender Loving Care
TLC is a silent revolution that sweeps the corridors of every Apollo hospital, every single day. Its objective is simple and clear – ensure the best patient experience possible. This focus transcends beyond just the soft and emotional aspects. At Apollo it is practised like a science. It consists of a deck of best practises that encompass the universe of patient touch points. A wide range of systems that have been perfected to ensure that every process at Apollo is patient-centric.
Cancer care draws strongly on Apollo’s strong credentials in TLC. This is a long and elaborate process that only begins with detection and treatment. Rehabilitation, counsel and support are vitals facets of a well rounded cancer programme. At Apollo no stone is left unturned in ensuring the maximum comfort and well being of our patients.
A robust network of expert support staff and initiatives further enhance Apollo’s patient focused approach to cancer care. Some of these unique offerings are:
