Indore (Madhya Pradesh): Aiming to expand the movement of organ donation across the state, the State Organ and Tissue Transplant Organization (SOTTO) is going to conduct an inspection at Government Medical College (GMC), Ratlam before permitting them to start cornea donation and transplant there.

A team of MGM Medical College, which is leading in organ donation in the state, will inspect the facility at Ratlam and will help them in setting up a flawless facility.

Dean of a government medical college is the appropriate authority for giving permission for starting any organ donation and transplant permission to any of the hospitals in the district but they have to conduct a third party inspection before initiating the noble cause.

“Yes, we received a request from Government Medical College, Ratlam for conducting the inspection. We have constituted the team and even send the names to the dean of the medical college Ratlam,” dean of MGM Medical College and ex-officio, SOTTO Dr Sanjay Dixit said.

He added that the team of ophthalmologists of MY Hospital and School of Excellence for Eye will inspect the facility in coming days.

“Along with the ophthalmologists, the administrative officials, CMHO, and other authorities will also take part in inspection and will decide over the permission to start cornea transplant and donation in Ratlam,” Dr Dixit added.
