The Medical Convoys Committee of the Ministry of Health has dispatched a medical team of 13 doctors to Sabha Medical Centre for conducting medical checkups, starting from Monday.

The Director of the Information Department of the Ministry of Health, Omar Maatouk, said that the team will cover the deficit in the Centre in a number of specialties, especially in light of the current conditions the city is going through.

 He added that the Committee intends to send in the period ahead another medical convoy of various disciplines to operate the clinic in Al-Qaradah neighbourhood.

Earlier this month, the Health Ministry formed a committee to assess the service delivery level and the extent of Sabha Medical Center to handle emergencies, including performing surgeries, in addition to the readiness of private health clinics to receive cases transferred to them from the Centre.
