KD 2.2 million to extend the air ambulance contract

Health sources revealed that the Central Agency for Public Tenders has agreed to extend the contract for providing air ambulance and medical evacuation services for a period of 6 months, starting from next September 6, until the completion of the procedures for signing the new tender contract.

The sources pointed out that this type of service has brought about a qualitative leap in the level of health services, especially with regard to saving lives and accident injuries on highways in remote areas and islands, and the speed of arrival of cases to emergency departments in public hospitals, pointing out that the cost of the extension amounts to 2.2 million dinars. The matter was referred to the Audit Bureau for final approvals.
