DHA official makes inspectional visit
Dubai, September 25, 2012
The director-general of DHA, Qadhi Saeed Al Murooshid, recently made an inspectional visit to the DHA health regulation department, where he was briefed about the workflow and the systems in place to meet growing healthcare needs.
Al Murooshid was briefed by Dr Ramadan Ibrahim, the director of health regulation at the DHA about the new mechanisms in place including the online licensing system known as ‘Sheryan’ which allows healthcare professionals and institutions to apply for a license to practise in Dubai.
The online application means individuals or institutions can apply from anywhere in the world, seven days a week, at any time and they will receive automatic confirmation once their application is received.
Ibrahim said that since the introduction of this system they have seen a surge in the number of applicants applying for a license to practise in Dubai as the system is online and highly cost effective for both healthcare professionals and institutions.
“The system has received 1,44,978 applications from all over the world for both healthcare facilities and professional practice license since its launch in October 2011,” he said.
“Medical professionals or health facilities from Egypt, Pakistan, Iran, Syria, Jordan, Britain and the UAE are on top of the list in submitting their online applications with Sheryan to obtain permits for working or operating in the Emirate.”
So far more than 21,000 health professionals and 2,150 facilities in Dubai are licensed by the DHA regulation department, Ibrahim added. – TradeArabia News Service
