UAE ministry plans extended home visit services

26 June 2010

The Emirates Nursing Association (ENA) has said the health ministry plans to extend its home visit service for a wider variety of patients, an initiative that is still in the planning stage, Gulf News has reported. The visitation services granted for some patients by the ministry were available in all emirates, but directed mainly to the elderly. The service will be reinforced by applying more guidelines, and to ensure that the service will be available for a wider variety in society. "New plans are being constructed in order to develop the home-visitation service that will cater to every segment in society from the elderly, to pre and post natal women and others," Dr Mahmoud Al Fikri, executive director of health policies at the ministry said.
