Tuesday, 12 22 2015, Category: Health, Country: Jordan
The president of the Jordanian Senate Faisal Al-Fayez announced that the council approved a draft proposal for a Medical Accountability Law which will be submitted to the government to go through the constitutional and approval stages; noting that the Council gives great attention to medical accountability. During the 17th Meeting organized by the Arab Union for Consumers with the participation of presidents and representatives from 14 Arab associations for consumer protection, Al-Fayez said that Jordan’s high interest in medical accountability stems from its concern for medical excellence and for keeping Jordan a destination for Arabs and foreigners seeking advanced medical care at the lowest cost. He added that the most important justifications with regard to this law are raising the degree of legal protection for medical personnel, making sure patients have access to the highest levels of health service based on wise and healthy medical procedures, and increasing the efficiency and performance of health services to keep pace with global advances in addition to strengthening and clarifying the doctor-patient relationship.
