Dr Al Hawi told Khaleej Times that the new medical centres come as part of the ministry’s efforts to enhance the medical services in the Northern Emirates through launching several projects in the area.

“The new medical centres include three centres in Sharjah, two in Ras Al Khaimah, one in Dubai, one in Umm Al Quwain, and another two centres in Fujiarah. The ministry has conducted several meeting with the directors of a number of medical welfare centres in the Northern Emirates to discuss the services development plan, the national archives for chronic diseases, and other future plan to develop the medical services in these areas,” said Dr Al Hawi.

The agreement is considered to be a huge step to developing the skills of the employees in the ministry.

Dr Al Hawi said: “The ministry has given several amenities to its employees in order to decrease the amount of money paid for acquiring the international licence. The prices have been decreased from Dh5,000 to Dh1,600 for the health ministry employees. The sessions will go on for five weeks and next month around 60 employees will get the licence,” added Dr Al Hawi.
