Dubai Health Authority to launch new home delivery service

DUBAI, January 14, 2018

The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) has announced the launch of a new home delivery service of feeding tubes for DHA patients who cannot obtain nutrition by mouth, the elderly and people of determination.

The DHA signed a MoU with Danone Nutricia Middle- East, an international nutrition company specialising in healthy nutrition, patient food and food supplements.
The MoU was signed by Humaid Al Qutami, chairman of the Board and director general of the DHA, and Wael Hamza, managing director Middle East Africa & South East Asia at Danone Medical Nutrition (Nutricia), in the presence of DHA officials including Dr Wafa Ayesh, director of the Clinical Nutrition Department at DHA.

This new service will save patient’s time and effort, as instead of going to DHA hospitals on a monthly basis to receive their prescribed feeding tubes, they will be able to receive the service from the comfort of their homes from the distributor directly under the direct supervision of the authority’s clinical nutrition department.

The new service will also include nurses who will monitor the feeding tube process and educate the patient’s family on the best ways to take advantage of the new service.

Following the signing of the MoU, Al Qutami said the authority constantly works to alleviate any burden patients may suffer as a result of their health conditions, noting that DHA is adopting a series of medical and social services that depend on delivering the same service to the elderly and people of determination.

He added that the new service represents an important milestone for the authority, which aims to provide customer satisfaction and happiness.
Al Qatami commended all institutions and companies who sign agreements and MoUs with the authority to better serve patients and provide them with the needed care. He also praised the efforts exerted by the Department of Clinical Nutrition to enhance patient-oriented services. - TradeArabia News Service
