First: Research and planning

Establishing a new clinic can be exciting but it has its challenges. So with the right research, and business planning you might do just fine!

  2. Do I need good administrators to run my clinic as well as doctors?
  3. How can I make my clinic more welcoming to patients?

You need to research first about the demand for specific medical needs in Dubai, see what’s highly required in that area and start planning from there. 

Develop a comprehensive business plan that outlines what your clinic has to offer, targeted market, financial projections and operational plan. 

Second: Legal and regulatory compliance

You should understand the legal and regulatory requirements for setting up a medical clinic in Dubai. here are the steps for starting up your medical clinic:

  1. Reserve a trade name. 
  2. Obtain initial approval from the DED. 
  3. Obtain initial approval from the DHA. 
  4. Submit the documents. 
  5. Get Final Approval from the DED and get the License from DHA. 

And if you’re an investor, you should submit all the required documents of all of the shareholders. And after verifying the documents you are good to go. 

Third: Location and Facilities

You should find a suitable location for your establishment that suits the standards of a good clinic and the healthy facility requirements. Consider the size, location and layout of your place. 

And don’t forget about all of the necessary equipment and technology that your doctors and staff will need in the future as well as the furniture to make sure your patients are comfortable there. 

Ensure that your clinic meets all the safety and regulatory standards, such as fire alerts, emergency exits, and accessibility for special needs patients. 

Fourth: Healthcare professionals

To ensure the best for your patients, you have to consider hiring only qualified healthcare professionals, including doctors, nurses, and administrative staff to emphasize the importance of providing high-quality care to your patients. 

In Dubai, all healthcare professionals must be licensed according to the regulations set by the Dubai Health Authority (DHA). And identify the specific roles you need to fill in your establishment and recruit individuals who have the necessary qualifications and expertise in their respective fields.
