Aug 08, Colombo: Minister of Health, Nutrition and Indigenous Medicine Dr. Rajitha Senaratne says that a Cabinet Memorandum will be submitted to make the expressways toll free for ambulances.

The Health Minister made this statement during a discussion with the officials at Puttalam Base Hospital after an observation tour of the hospital yesterday.

The Puttalam hospital staff who were present at the discussion pointed out that the ambulances use the expressway when transporting emergency patients and the medical officers traveling in the ambulance have to pay the expressway toll from their own pockets.

The Minister paying attention to the issue said a cabinet paper will be submitted to make the expressway free for ambulances as a national policy and a final decision will be taken.
