From the onset of the pandemic, RAK Hospital has consistently prioritized the well-being of the community by implementing various initiatives to safeguard the health and safety of the population. Demonstrating an unwavering dedication to the people of Ras Al Khaimah, the prominent healthcare institution has now introduced a pioneering initiative, the Post-Covid Clinic. This specialized clinic is specifically tailored to cater to the requirements of individuals who continue to experience lingering symptoms even after their recovery from COVID-19.

In a community-driven endeavor, RAK Hospital is providing a remarkable opportunity for individuals dealing with long COVID. As part of this initiative, the hospital is offering 100 complimentary CT chest scans, along with a consultation with Dr. Suha Alsheikh Suleman, a Specialist Pulmonologist. This ensures that patients receive essential diagnostic support and the care they require. The free consultations and CT scans are available until July 31, 2023, emphasizing the hospital’s commitment to the well-being of the community.

Dr. Raza Siddiqui, Executive Director of RAK Hospital, said, “The hospital was born to serve the community, and since day one, community outreach has been our top priority. From setting up an exclusive COVID PCR center and providing quick test results to introducing the first antibody treatment against the virus in the UAE and launching comprehensive rehabilitation and support for COVID long-haulers, our institution has pioneered many initiatives.

“Today, in response to the growing number of patients grappling with post-COVID symptoms, we are launching the Post-COVID Clinic. Our goal is to provide expert care and comprehensive support in a dedicated clinic, tailored to meet the unique needs of long COVID patients in our community. I urge individuals experiencing persistent post-COVID symptoms to visit our Post-COVID Clinic and take advantage of the complimentary CT scans and consultations.”

The Post-Covid Clinic will receive complete support from RAK Hospital’s pulmonary medicine department, ensuring comprehensive capabilities to diagnose and treat various pulmonary conditions. Equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, the clinic offers an array of services, including pulmonary function testing, bronchoscopy, oxygen therapy, medication management, and tailored rehabilitation programs. These services are designed to aid patients in their recovery from respiratory events, while concurrently improving their overall pulmonary health.

“The launch of the Post-COVID Clinic, coupled with our provision of 100 free CT chest scans, reaffirms RAK Hospital’s commitment to supporting individuals on their journey to recovery from COVID-19. We understand the challenges and uncertainties that long COVID patients face, and we want to assure them that they are not alone. This groundbreaking endeavor sets a new standard for specialized care, underscoring our unwavering dedication to the well-being and happiness of our patients”, said Dr Siddiqui.
