Escalla Supporting Healthcare Reform in Egypt

Ministerial visit marks the first 33 Egyptian doctors to complete the Patient Pathways learning programme

This month, H.E. Hala Zayed, The Egyptian Minister for Health and Population visited the first 33 doctors to complete our Primary Care Pathways learning programme.

This multi-stage, 10-day training programme, developed by the Egyptian Ministry for Health and Escalla, has been developed to pass-on knowledge to doctors across Egypt, by sharing best practice from UK primary, secondary and community healthcare services. This will allow for accelerated and successful adoption of new care pathways within Egypt, with the associated benefits in patient experience – estimated to benefit over 100 million Egyptians.

David Field, Managing Director of Escalla, said of the project, “This investment in the future health and welfare of the Egyptian people is something Escalla is proud to be part of. We are committed to bringing our wealth of knowledge and experience to the Egyptian people during this exciting phase in their country’s history. I would like to thank H.E. Hala Zayed, and the Egyptian government for this opportunity to play a key part in this visionary and ground-breaking programme. It was inspirational to all the doctors that Her Excellency took time to visit them and give her support to the programme personally.”

Siva Singh, Global Director of Health at Escalla added, "It was a pleasure to meet Her Excellency  and the first cohort of Egyptian doctors who will act as ambassadors for the programme. We look forward to welcoming the next group of doctors and helping Egypt to transform its healthcare system."

In signing this recent contract and Memorandum of Understanding, Escalla has committed to the successful delivery of the first cohort of 100 GP delegates. The contract was awarded as a result of Escalla’s 20 years’ experience working alongside key partners, including the NHS, The Department for International Trade, Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Healthcare UK.
