Bahrain is keen to provide the best health services and achieve comprehensive health coverage, in line with the directives of His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa and continuous follow-up of His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince and Prime Minister.
This was emphasised by Lieutenant General Dr Shaikh Mohammed bin Abdullah Al Khalifa, President of the Supreme Council of Health (SCH) as he paid an inspection visit to the Bank of Bahrain and Kuwait (BBK) Health Centre in Hidd, in Muharraq.
The location was chosen alongside Halat Bumaher health Centre in Muharraq to provide services around the clock. Lt Gen Dr Shaikh Mohammed bin Abdullah got informed about the BK Centre departments, in the presence of SCH Secretary General Ebrahim Ali Al Nawakhdha and a number of officials.
He praised the centre’s distinguished standard and its advanced equipment and capabilities. He also reviewed progress in the self-management project of the primary healthcare centres which is currently undergoing a trial phase in Muharraq before it is generalised in all the governorates.
The SCH President praised keenness of all to inform the citizens in Muharraq about “Choose Your Doctor” programme, which falls under the umbrella of the project. He stressed that the self-management project is in concordance with the government’s programme and embodies the goals emanating from Bahrain Economic Vision 2030. He added it is also part of the national initiatives to continuously optimise health services and ensure their sustainability.
