<p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Residents of Dagoretti area and its environs have a reason to smile thanks to Aga Khan University Hospital's continued initiative to decentralize health care services by introducing mobile clinic services in the area. The move is aimed at providing quality healthcare services at suibsidised fees to people at the greatest need.
Located at the Dagoretti District Commissioners Office compound, the mobile clinic is specially designed with three inbuilt consultation rooms, a well-stocked pharmacy with a wide variety of cost-effective drugs and a laboratory with the capacity to handle both routine and specialized tests.
“We are committed to improving access to quality healthcare for all irrespective of their faith, gender, ethnic origin and social economic status and that is why we have highly subsidized fees for the mobile clinic services. We also understand that not every patient can make it to the main hospital hence the devolution of services to the estates through our outreach programme making it convenient for people outside the city centre.” Said Mr Amaan Khalfan, Chief Operations Officer, Outreach Programme at Aga Khan University Hospital.
The clinic will be run by a dedicated team of specialists consisting of consultant doctors, nurses, lab technologists and pharmacists to offer the best care the hospital can provide to the residents.</span></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">The mobile clinic is closely linked to the main hospital to effectively facilitate patient admission transfers where patients require more specialized care and treatment. The mobile clinic becomes the 49th outreach clinic with 47 others spread across Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania.
The clinic will be operational every Monday to Friday from 9:00 am – 6:00 pm and 10:00 am – 4:00 pm on Saturdays, Sunday and public holidays.
