Kuwait: Action to be Taken Against Some Doctors
Kuwait Times, 30 January 2023: The Kuwait Ministry of Health is to take disciplinary action against doctors who have conducted medical examinations and x-rays on expatriates without charging the necessary fees.
These fees are usually collected by health staff before the treatment is given. However, it was found some doctors had let relatives and friends who were expats use these services without charging them. Steps taken would include referring these doctors to an investigation at the ministry or referring them to the Public Prosecution in the case of repeat offences.
