REVIEW ARTICLE ON PERCEPTION OF OPD ATTENDEES IN PRIMARY HEALTH CENTRES

Uzma eram

Abstract


Facilities for providing health care do not get the desired acceptance of the community, and are therefore rendered
unsuccessful.e quality of service in health means an inexpensive type of service with minimum side effects that can cure or
relieve the health problems of the patients.It is easier to evaluate the patient's satisfaction towards the service than evaluate the quality of
medical services that they receive.erefore, a research on patient satisfaction can be an important tool to improve the quality of
services.Patient satisfaction with the healthcare services largely determines their compliance with the treatment. Accessibility is one of the
principles of Health for All, as stated in Alma Ata declaration on primary health care. e aim of this study was to review the literature on
perception of OPD attendees in primary health centres.
