All healthcare centres in Dubai to offer emergency services shortly

The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) has announced that emergency services will be offered at all health care centres in Dubai and not in just the major hospitals.

With ambitious plans to make Dubai a medical hub in the region, Eng. Eisa Al Maidour, the Director-General of DHA said that emergency services at health care centres are the first of its kind in the region.

The DHA has more than 15 primary health care centres, with plans for further expansion. The centres offer services including outpatient family treatment, child health, dental work, antenatal care, ENT, ophthalmology and dermatology.

During series of visits to DHA hospitals and centres over Eid, Al Maidour highlighted the expansion plans of the Authority. Earlier emergency services were provided only in three major hospitals, namely, Dubai and Latifa hospitals, and Rashid hospital. Now, emergency services will also be available to public at healthcare centres.

Further, Al Maidour during his visit to Trauma and Emergency Centre, said the expansions will be done in next two years, which will add 160 beds and 116 treatment rooms. Further, emergency care across other areas of the emirate will be expanded. The Jebel Ali Hospital will also have trauma care in the short term.

A steady increase of about 12 percent in health care requirements is expected. Access to health care is always a priority and additional projects have been planned out until 2025. The aim is to provide hospitals within radius of eight to twelve kilometres from all catchment areas and health centres will be located within 3 to 5kms of all catchment areas, he said.
