Abu Dhabi’s Hospitals Hit Their Waiting Time Target
More than four in five of Abu Dhabi’s 41 hospitals, health centres and clinics hit patient waiting-time targets last year.
Guidelines set by health chiefs require primary-care patients to be given an appointment within 48 hours. Accident and emergency patients should be seen within an hour and treated, discharged or transferred within two hours.
The number of primary-care patients seen within the target time rose from 88 per cent in October 2014 to 98 per cent last year. The number of emergency patients seen within an hour increased from 85 per cent to 97 per cent. Details
