Minister of Health Dr Bassel Al-Sabah says the number of expatriate employees of the ministry’s subsidiaries whose ages exceed 55 years old is 3,707, reports Al-Rai daily.

He indicated that the contracts of some of them will not be renewed in line with the Kuwaitization plan but the others will be renewed due to the need of the services and lack of alternative options for doing the same tasks.

In response to the parliamentary question submitted by MP Abdulkareem Al-Kandari, Dr Bassel explained that the ministry has taken many procedures to enumerate the number of employees for terminating their services based on the rules and procedures of the Kuwaitization policy applied on governmental jobs and the functional groups targeted for Kuwaitization.

Nearly 258 non- Kuwaiti employees were listed for termination of services. The ministry also issued decision No. 236/2016, and other decisions to terminate the services of 253 employees. Furthermore,Minister of Health Dr Basel Al-Sabah has issued Ministerial Resolution No. 351/2018 to reorganize the Supreme Medical Committee for Overseas Treatment and add new specialists to the otolaryngology and orthopedic committee, reports Al-Jarida daily.
