Please enclose the Demand Draft in Indian Rupees for the appointment. We also accept foreign bankers drafts made out in Rupees.

The draft should be in favour of

“Treasurer, CMC Vellore Association” and payable at Vellore Town Branch

Post or send by courier all this to:

The Head, Outpatient Services,

We will let you know your appointment day, time etc:

Please note: the rates are sometimes changed. So you may be asked to pay the difference after your arrival. If you paid too little, you will have to pay the extra needed. If you paid too much money, it will be credited to your CMC hospital account. This can be used to pay for other services or refunded to you.

If you have been to CMC, Vellore as a patient before you do not need to register again.

Safety of your Hospital Number Card

Hospital Card:
front and Back

When you register you will get a card. This is called the Hospital Number Card. The counter staff need this when you book appointments, pay and when you have blood tests and other tests done.

We also use it to find your chart which has the doctors notes, letters and your test results in it. Your tests and investigation results are listed using the hospital number.

Please keep it carefully. To get a duplicate hospital number card contact G-32 in the ground floor of the main OPD building. Do not register again just to get new card. It will give you two sets of hospital notes which can cause big problems.
