The Ministry of Health (MoH), Dubai Health Authority (DHA) and Health Authority of Abu Dhabi (HAAD) signed an agreement on Wednesday for the unification of licenses for medical practitioners in the country.

Medical practitioners in the country were waiting for this unification process for some time as this will enhance their employment chances.

“It’s a new step on the right path in order to unify the regulations, laws and procedures governing this noble human profession,” said Dubai Ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum about the agreement that was signed on the sidelines of Arab Health Exhibition & Congress.

According to the ministry sources, the law would standardize several aspects of medical services in private and public sectors. The law would also ensure there was a single format for hiring, and salaries for each job.

“This is a good step and now a plenty of medical professionals will be available in the market as they can practice in any emirate with any of MoH/DHA/HAAD licenses,” investors told Arab News.

Sheikh Mohammed described Health Exhibition & Congress as an excellent scientific medical demonstration, considering the scientific level of both participants and visitors, saying that the exhibition was a platform to exchange views, ideas, experiences and scientific studies that contribute to the development of health care.

Sheikh Mohammed stressed that the UAE will always remain an oasis of cultural harmony and human generosity.

Surely, this will be a good news to Filipino nurses and other health professionals applying in the Emirates.

    nothing to be excited about… puro nkapending lahat mga dha and moh license holder..one of the hindrances is the service gap dahil ngseserve kayo sa ibang emirates…second karamihan ng facility hindi tumatanggap as sponsor because of problem no.1, 3rd super hirap ng exam kayo kokonti lang pumasa.. for me its better that way..no offense..dahil sobrang hirap pinagdaanan namin at nkapakalupit ng exam…its very unfair dha at moh exam super sisiw lang tapos magpaconvert…yes, its really very very unfair..

    NEVER, NEVER EVER WORK IN HOMECARE! huwag matigas ang ulo. Wala kang mukha as a nurse pag naglalakad. Karamihan dito maliit ang tingin sa mga homecare dahil totoo naman para silang first class na yaya. Papatapunin ng basura, dinadala sa mall at sa park, minsan binabastos ng pasyente, susukaan, punas ihi at ebak at ang nakakadepress makipagcooperate ka sa maid (kadama) na sipsip sa mga amo nila at minsan uutusan ka ng trabahong hindi kanais nais. Yes, kung tatawag tong mga homecare na to, ipapaasa nila sayo lahat. ang liit nga ng sahod na ibibigay nila compare sa 60t dirhams na kikitain nila every two months sa insurance. Manggagamit lang ng pinoy nurse. Lisensya lang po ang habol nila. hindi nila nimention na marami silang pasyente sa labas ng abu dhabi at bugbog kapa sa travel. delikado bilis magmaneho mga service nila dahil naghahabol sa oras.Minsan tatawagan kapa papadutyhin kahit mukha kanang zombie dahil puyat kapa sa duty. walang fixed na schedule at overtime pay. Mga pasyente minsan nagbibigay ng pagkain minsan wala. Kahit pasyente mo lang concern mo eh paano nasa loob kanang bahay pati family members uutos sayo. minsan gagawa ka ng assignment sa mga anak nila.Sayang ang lisensya mong pinaghirarapan sana CAREGIVER nalang kinuha mong kurso. Sorry po sa na offend wala akong intention na manira, gusto ko lang eshare yung katotohanan sa mga nurses dyan sa pinas at sanay hindi kayo magsisisi. I still believe that nursing is a noble job , a well respected profession and has a specified scope of function but sayang yung karamihan napunta lang sa ganyang klaseng trabaho( karamihan kasi napilitan lang usually yung nag tourist visa mag eexpire na kaya papatol nalang kahit labag sa loob nila)… I just hope i've shared something of significance.. an important inference to inculcate in your decision making process… Always ask guidance from God in all of your undertakings… take care always… huwag magpapadala sa mga sweet na persuasions at karamihan pinay ginagamit kokontak sa inyo dyan mangombinsi…… sana HAAD people..please address this problem.. karamihan ng mga homecare dito mga abusado..walang klarong overtime pay, very coersive mgmaduty at the expense of the nurses' health, walang holiday, walang pay slip, walang hazard pay kahit gabi pinapaduty ang layo pa minsan bahay ng pasyente ng tratravel pa….etc..
