Al Rahoomi added that the percentage of calls answered was 96 per cent and the remaining four per cent amounted to calls missed.

“Of the calls received, 57 per cent were queries about licensing and regulations and the remaining calls included queries about DHA hospital services, locations, feedback and complaints, medical fitness, DHA services etc.,” she said.

Al Rahoomi added that the DHA issued a customer service charter in 2015 and so far the department has conducted more than 25 training workshops  for DHA customer service officials so that they are aware of the charter and their roles and responsibilities. – TradeArabia News Service
