On the other hand, Dr. Ahmed bin Said Al Kalbani, Director General of Health Services in A’Dhahirah Governorate, confirmed that establishing a dialysis unit in the Wilayat of Dhank brings a valuable asset to the governorate, and will contribute to reducing the pressure in the dialysis units in Ibri and Yanqul hospitals.
