Dubai: International doctors can now easily arrive from abroad to treat emergency cases after Lieutenant General Sheikh Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior, facilitated the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to supervise the “Bin Wariqah” service.
The service will ease out the process of arrival of doctors in emergency cases, official news agency WAM has reported.
The MoU aims to enhance the joint work and concerted efforts exerted in implementing government directives by achieving cooperation among all institutions and agencies to raise the readiness of human resources in government agencies during times of crisis and emergency situations, especially frontline healthcare workers. It enhances partnership relations by facilitating the way doctors of vital specialties reach their medical facilities in response to emergency cases through the Bin Wariqah Service.
The MOU was virtually signed by representatives of the Ministry of Interior, the Ministry of Presidential Affairs, the Ministry of Defense, the Ministry of Health and Prevention, Department of Health – Abu Dhabi and Dubai Health Authority.
Named after Saeed bin Wariqah Al-Ameri, one of the companions of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Khalifa Al Nahyan (Zayed the First), it is a service that facilitates the arrival of doctors working on the First Defense Line to hospitals in emergency cases.
