Rotating clinic
The mechanics of the Gujarat Transport Department's workshop at Naroda in Ahmedabad have developed a special type of bus, which can be used as an ambulance as well as a mobile clinic.

The peculiarity of this bus is that a separate seating arrangement has been arranged for the doctor, so that the patient and the doctor do not come in direct contact. For this, a partition has been kept between the doctor and the patient. There is also a partition between the two beds. Entry-exit is also different for doctor and patient. The driver compartment is also partitioned. The Corporation is also conducting basic training programs for drivers and conductors for first aid, which will make this multipurpose medical van more useful and effective.
