Under the partnership, “Ask Apollo” would enable video consultation by Airtel Nigeria’s premier customers with Apollo Hospitals doctors in India with a prior appointment.
In addition to this service, Apollo Hospitals would also work with Airtel Nigeria on creating health awareness with a particular emphasis on preventive healthcare.
Dr.Hari Prasad, CEO Eastern Region, Apollo Hospitals Group, mentioned that Apollo Hospitals and Airtel Nigeria are taking advantage of the revolution in technology to get the people of Nigeria closer to the world-renowned doctors of Apollo Hospitals.
Speaking on the initiative, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Airtel Nigeria, Mr. Segun Ogunsanya, noted that the partnership with Apollo Hospitals will not only make it possible for Airtel premier customers to have access to experienced healthcare practitioners and life-saving information, but would also offer convenience and a platform for improved quality of life.
“This is another demonstration of Airtel’s commitment to enhancing the quality of life of Nigerians through innovative products and services. Because we see our customers as more than just a connection, we have taken this further step to provide them access to excellent medical attention, which they ordinarily would have travelled abroad for”, Ogunsanya stated.
Airtel Premier Customers interested in availing these services may call 09022222006 or 09022222007. The consultation facilities will be available at Diamond Helix Medical Assistance Ltd, Plot-8, Block-91 Iron Bar Street, Off Providence Street, Lekki Phase-1, Lagos, every Saturday at noon for three hours.
This service offers 10% discount on the consultation fees and has the additional advantage of 5-10% discount on Emirates Airlines flights, if a customer wishes to proceed to India for further medical attention.
