Officials at the meeting

Dubai Airports, officials discuss medical services at DXB

DUBAI, June 8, 2016

Senior representatives from Dubai Airports, Dubai Police and the Airport Medical Centre at Dubai International Airport (DXB) met yesterday to discuss the ongoing provision of medical services and robust procedures that ensure the safety and wellbeing of the passengers flying through the airport each year.

“Many travelers have medical needs as they pass through our airports,” said Chris Garton, executive vice president of operations for Dubai Airports. “We have to be prepared to deal with a wide variety of conditions and ailments. Additionally, many of our customers rely on personal medical electronic devices such as pacemakers, neuro-stimulators, implantable cardio defibrillators, insulin pumps, blood glucose monitors, etc. that they must have with them during their travel. We have procedures in place to facilitate this and work closely with medical services and Dubai Police to continually review and reinforce these through staff awareness and  training to meet passenger needs.”
The Airport Medical Center (AMC) at Dubai International is an extended service unit provided by the Dubai Health Authority. Established in 1971 as a small clinic, the facility was expanded in 2000 in Concourse C, and in 2008 was further expanded to include a satellite clinic in Concourse B at Terminal 3. Currently there are three AMC clinics (Concourses A, B, & C) at Dubai International and one at Dubai World Central (DWC). The unit maintains continuity of urgent/emergency medical care throughout the 24 hour period, seven days a week. - TradArabia News Service
