Jordan, UAE discuss medical cooperation prospects

Director General of the Royal Medical Services (RMS), Mjr. Gen. Muin Al-Habashneh, discussed Thursday with a delegation of the UAE military medical services aspects of future cooperation in the treatment fields, especially dispatching qualified Jordanian personnel to work at the Gulf country’s military hospitals.

During the meeting, Al-Habashneh said joint cooperation positively helped exchange medical expertise.

The Royal Medical Services is now a destination for the local health sectors, since it has a longstanding record of precision medical specialties (PMS) not available in the other institutions, he said.

The RMS is a key player in the Jordanian health sector and admits all out-patients referred to its governorates’ hospitals and continuously work to upgrade its facilities with trained medical personnel at the highest level, he added.

Al-Habashneh invited the UAE counterpart to attend the Royal Medical Services (RMS) international conference, slated to be held this year under Royal patronage at the end of October, with the participation of more than 50 countries, and brings together leaders in the medical specialties.

In turn, Dr. Aisha Al Dhahiri, Director of the UAE Medical Services Directorate, spoke of the high professionalism of the RMS’s medical staff, and said the two countries provided distinguished treatment and health care during their joint peacekeeping missions across the world.

Al-Dhahiri said the delegation’s visit today aims to hold coordination discussions with the Royal Medical Services to reach a preliminary agreement to send doctors and nurses from the RMS to work in the UAE military hospitals.
