Healthcare Facility Survey

DoH created the Healthcare Facility Survey with support from TAHPI. The survey is designed to accurately capture current information on health facilities and services in Abu Dhabi. Please be assured it is not a performance audit.

The results from the survey will be utilised as part of DoH’s capacity planning initiatives, addressing the future health service needs for Abu Dhabi. Survey results are made available to the public, using the Department of Health Public Mapping Tool.
