KUALA LUMPUR: Mauritius vice-president A. Raouf Bhundun is impressed with a centre with teleconferencing facilities for heart patients here. 

“This is a very good facility to assist poor patients. We want to set up a similar arrangement in Mauritius,” he said after visiting the Heart-to-Heart centre in Brickfields on Wednesday. 

The centre was set up last year through co-operation between the Global Organisation of People of Indian Origin (Gopio) Malaysian chapter and the South India-based Narayana Hrudayalaya Heart Institute in Bangalore. 

Raouf is here to open the 6th Asian Gopio conference tomorrow. 

Centre co-ordinator Dr Patrick Justin Lawrence said a tele-cardiology unit had been set up to enable patients to communicate with specialists from Bangalore.
