Service Wing - Sai Ideal Healthcare in UK

Inspired by the Divine example and teachings of our Master, Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, the SSSSO UK has for many years been involved in offering service in the field of Healthcare, both domestically and abroad. Our awareness of this work was raised following the Sai ideal Healthcare Conference conducted by the Organisation at the University of Reading in September 2011. To ensure that this good work continued to expand, whilst maintaining the high standards of Sai Ideal Health Care, it was deemed pivotal that a facilitative body comprising of various healthcare professionals should be constituted to help, support, guide and streamline activities for the future.

By Bhagawan’s Grace, the Sathya Sai Healthcare National Co-ordinating Committee UK was formed under the auspices of the National Service Wing of the UK Central Council. This committee has been working diligently towards providing this structure, making it possible for more health professionals from all fields as well as non-medical volunteers to derive joy through serving our fellow brothers and sisters. The committee has also been in consultation with various professionals, voluntary bodies and local governmental agencies, and is making steady progress in evolving qualitative guidance and support for the various healthcare projects undertaken currently under the sacred banner of SSSSO UK.

With in UK, members of the committee have visited Sathya Sai Health Awareness Days (SSHADs) in various regions. A standard proposal form and a set of guidelines has been produced, providing help, support, and advice on a variety of topics, to all those wishing to organise and run an event in their region. The plan is to encourage these SSHADs with a focus on prevention, a key principle of Sai Ideal Healthcare, while at the same time ensuring that we offer the highest standards of service, befitting the name of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. These forms will soon be made freely available through the National Service Wing to all Regions and Centres, so that these can be used as a resource when planning their events.

A further Healthcare Seminar is being held on Sunday September 16th this year in Hatfield in London to discuss the progress made thus far, and to look at ways to develop and enhance further our current work in UK (including Blood Donation services, Bone Marrow transplant registers, and First Aid training), and at an international level ( including medical camps, hospital rotas, mobile clinics, telemedicine).
