GP advises 200 patients at a time
Dr Anant Prasad has built an extension to his practice so he can give health advice to as many as 200 patients at once.
He plans to target patients of Indian and Pakistani origin first to educate them about their higher risk of diabetes and heart disease.
Dr Prasad, a GP in Bolton, said the talks will be given in either English or Asian sub-continent languages to help patients understand their condition and the need for strict drug compliance.
'Ethnic south Asians' understanding is not very good regarding diabetes or heart problems, so the main thing is to tell them why they need treatment,' he said.
