A first aid clinic will be open to more than 4,000 Al Ain municipality workers and their families under a new partnership with NMC Specialty Hospital.

Under the agreement, NMC will provide medical treatments in emergency cases and first aid training workshops to help improve community health care.

Educational workshops are planned with lectures to employees focusing on preventative measures and early diagnosis examination campaigns.

Awareness programmes will aim to promote a culture of physical health among Al Ain Municipality workers.

“We’ve invited NMC to look after the overall wellness of our employees and their dependents, as we recognise NMC’s contribution to the health and well-being of the communities in Al Ain,” said Dr Matar Al Noemi, Director General of the Municipality for Al Ain City.

The first aid post will operate from Sunday to Thursday during Al Ain City Municipality working hours, providing first aid tools on site for use when necessary.

It will also train workers on treatment of similar cases, while classifying any injuries reported to refer them to the appropriate department.
