Dubai: Emirates Health Services (EHS) has introduced a new bundle of integrated medical and treatment services at its primary healthcare centres.

The new services include prevention and early detection of diseases and risk factors; treatment of non-communicable diseases, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol; and healthcare for pregnant women based on advanced scientific evidence.

Dr. Aisha Muhammad Suhail, Director of the Primary Health Care Department at EHS, said: “Our primary healthcare centres provide treatment services that meet the highest international standards, administering medical examinations with the latest and most advanced devices available, including AI-powered equipment. This is made possible by the high level of expertise and skill of the medical and nursing staff we employ to operate the centres.
