MoH urged to suppport cancer center Experienced expat doctors may migrate: Al-Awadhi

KUWAIT CITY, Dec 31: Director of Kuwait Center for Controlling Cancer Dr Ahmad Al-Awadi says experienced expatriate doctors of the center may migrate to other GCC countries due to lack of support and services in the center, reports Annahar daily. He urged the officials of Ministry of Health to support the center; otherwise, the experienced doctors of the center will migrate to other GCC countries especially after Qatar and United Arab Emirates inaugurated specialized medical centers. He indicated that such a phenomenon will lead to Kuwaiti citizens being dispatched to other GCC countries for treatment.

In an interview with the daily, he said he wondered if the desired goal through the deterioration of the center’s services is to shut it down and dispatch the cancer patients overseas for treatment. Dr Al-Awadi insisted that the health services provided in Kuwait must be trusted, indicating that the center received several cases that came from other countries where these services were not available.

He affirmed that the center suffers from a shortage of personnel particularly for the positions of medical registers, secretary and public relations, stressing that bureaucracy is still the main reason why receiving a number of systems required for the cancer patients were delayed. He added that demands were submitted three years ago for the systems, which have not been delivered so far. He said the lawmakers and media personalities do not highlight the international conventions appropriately, as they portray the conventions as unsuccessful ones.
