March 17, 2018, 8:43 am

The Ministry of Health has instructed all sectors to submit names of expatriate doctors, nurses, pharmacists, technicians and executives born in 1953 and earlier or those 65 years old and above, reports Al-Anba daily quoting sources.

Sources disclosed this is in line with the decision of Health Minister Sheikh Dr Basil Al-Sabah to apply the replacement policy by terminating the above mentioned expatriate staff.

Sources added the ministry has asked the Medical Division Council regarding the mechanism for seeking assistance of expatriate doctors who are 65 years old and above within five years maximum or until they reach 70 years old.

Meanwhile, the Health Licenses Department in the Health Ministry has confirmed that 29 clinics are operating without licenses, reports Al-Nahar daily.

This is in response to the query of the Medical Professions Union about 31 private health centers which allegedly conduct plastic surgery and other operations without obtaining a license.

The department looked into the records of these clinics and it discovered that 29 out of the 31 clinics are unlicensed.

The ministry promised to take legal action against the unlicensed clinics and hold accountable the negligent officials behind the anomaly.
