Desperate times call for efficient measures. While the rampant coronavirus pandemic is putting a severe strain on the healthcare system in countries all over the world, researchers, doctors, entrepreneurs, and governments, are doing their best to find suitable solutions to the problem.

In these circumstances, if you are not feeling well, you may be concerned that going to a physician’s office, an urgent care facility, or a hospital could expose you to the infection. To make your life easier, GMCClinics is offering 800GMCDOC, a dedicated home healthcare service in Dubai that provides a doctor-on-call service 24/7 at the comfort of your home, office or hotel rooms - in all areas of the emirate.

Avoid hospital-acquired infection

GMCClinics’ goal is to prevent people from getting more sick by being exposed to a doctor's waiting room at clinics or hospitals. “With the current pandemic situation with COVID19, it makes sense to avoid sitting in waiting areas in hospitals, or even avoid interaction with hospital staff through registration, or triage,” says Nizar Edaili, Group Director, Business Development and Marketing, GMCClinics. “You are also avoiding using public transportation to reach hospitals or clinics. Our medical teams are well trained on international standards of sanitization and disinfection procedures, wearing N95 masks, gloves and we guarantee contactless treatment procedures.”

Getting care at home is exactly what health officials want you to do now, too. The World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are calling for hospital and healthcare providers to increase the use of telehealth services to ease pressure on healthcare facilities, reduce exposure risks for those who do not have the virus, and treat people who are quarantined at home.

It helps people with chronic conditions

It is also important to take care of the many people who still need routine healthcare for chronic conditions - or who just happen to get sick from a cold, flu or other common ailments. “800GMCDOC provides multispecialty medical services, which include chronic and acute healthcare services,” says Edaili. “We cater to all medical conditions that require a doctor’s visit, excluding life-threatening cases. We offer short-term and long-term nursing services, dietician consultations, physiotherapy, and also ECG and laboratory investigations.”
