We have all heard it, ‘Health is Wealth’. But the only time we recall the saying in contemplation and belief, is probably when I am the next one in queue outside my doctor’s clinic. The saying works for the larger public, let’s assume it’s the patients. Now how about the professionals; doctors, nurses, specialists and lab technicians? In this context, their health and wealth works differently.
