Social Healthcare Service Is much Needed In Saudi Arabia

According to recent data, nearly 25% of beds in all public hospitals in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia are occupied with patients suffering from chronic conditions, such as incurable diseases, old age or disabled patients. These data were highlighted in a recent medical conference, which was held for two days.

Dr. Nawwaf Al-Harithy, director of the Health Affairs Department in Hail, said “Such patients need healthcare more than medication. There is a great shortage in organizations that provide healthcare services to people who are long-term ill,” Dr. Al-Harithy added that although there is a marked increase in the organizations providing healthcare services, such as the National Guard and the House-Care Program of Princess Adilah bint Abdullah, there is an ongoing need for more services from such organizations. Social healthcare services were discussed in the recent medical conference, which took place at King Abdul Aziz Hospital in Jeddah.

During the conference, a number of specialists discussed several solutions to solve this issue. Among them was Dr. Sami bin Muhammad Badawood, Director of the Health Affairs Department in Jeddah, who said that there is a need for more support to social healthcare services in order to help more patients. He added that the relatives of such chronic patients are to take these patients out of the hospitals to allow other patients to have their much needed healthcare service. Abdul Rahman bin Saad, director of information and health awareness at the Department of Health Affairs, said that the conference presented methods of teaching families how to deal with their chronic patients.
