DUBAI: The medical wing of Pakistan Association Dubai (PAD) has launched one of its major initiatives — Pakistan Medical Clinic — to benefit the community with all the necessary healthcare facilities on flexible prices.
The construction of the project at the PAD premises will start early next year with an estimated cost of Dhs2.5 million.
The medical wing organised its annual dinner at the Grand Midwest Hotel in Dubai recently and announced the project.
The dinner was attended by a Dr Amer Sharif, managing director, education at Dubai Healthcare City, Javed Jalil Khattak, consul general of Pakistan, Dr Ziaul Hassan, president of PAD and a large number of community doctors and their families.
Dr Nighat Aftab, president of the medical wing, shed light on the activities of the wing.
The Pakistan Medical Wing was set up by a group of community doctors in 2009 as part of PAD and started arranging free medical camps to benefit the deserving members of the Pakistani community in Dubai. Image
“Since 2009, community doctors under the umbrella of the medical wing have  arranged around 53 medical camps to benefit around 80,000 patients to provide free medicines and consultations while four free eye camps were also organised to treat around120 patients,” she said.
She pointed that the free medical camp was being organised once every month on the last Friday but after establishing the medical clinic the service will be provided on a regular basis as community doctors are ready to devote their time voluntarily and the fee will be economical on every service.
“This will be a self-sustainable project for the PAD and the medical wing to continue their service toward the community in Dubai with the support of philanthropists,” she added.
According to the officials, the fee of general practitioners at the medical clinic will be Dhs25, dentists Dhs50, specialists Dhs60 while the X-ray/lab will be available for Dhs20, USG at Dhs50 and the fee for ECG will be Dhs50.
The two-storeyed building of the Pakistan Medical Clinic will be constructed at the PAD present premises.
Sharif shared a comprehensive report on the UAE Health System — achievements and future direction.
He lauded the role of the Pakistani community especially the PAD, set up since 1969 and which  has been active in various sectors.
Khatak appreciated the efforts of the medical wing and promised complete support for ongoing and future communications.
