(MENAFN - Arab Times) Director of Jahra Hospital Dr Shehab Al-Mahandi said Director of Jahra Health District Dr Abdul Aziz Al- Farhood has given instructions to continue the process of allotting the morning shift for citizens and GCC nationals, while the evening shift is for expatriates. It has been reported that this step was taken after the successful trial implementation of the decision in a bid to reduce the crowd

Sources confirmed the decision is now applied to other health districts and the evening shift is also expected to be allotted for Bedouns besides the expatriates. Sources added the suggestion was submitted to the Ministers Council after studying all aspects of the issue, especially since some people regard the move as a form of discrimination. Sources explained the main objective is to organize the administrative works and to ensure the best medical services are provided to everyone

Minister of Health Dr Ali Al-Obaidi held a meeting with the directors of health zones and hospitals in the presence of Undersecretary Dr Khalid Al-Sahlawi and the Director of Information Systems to identify a new mechanism for applying Bed Department scheme in the hospitals, reports Al-Seyassah daily. In a statement after the meeting, Al- Obaidi announced that follow-up teams will be dispatched to hospitals to ease procedures for patients inside the wards and follow up the quality of service delivery, including clinical examination and other services

He said the teams will follow-up the treatment plans physicians adopt for each patient. For example, the team will ease procedures to serve patients who urgently need X-ray. Also, the meeting underlined other issues such as shifting employees in various sectors of the ministry. On the other hand, Director of School Health Department at Ministry of Health Dr Eftiqar Al-Adwani confirmed over 90 percent of the schools have nurses, indicating the clinics were supplied with medical staff based on tenders the Ministry of Education presented to some private companies, under the supervision of Ministry of Health
