The Care Mobile program has the advantage of the ability to transform and expand the existing range of services, by offering specialist care, which takes into account the most urgent needs. At present, the Care Mobile team consists of more than 30 doctors – Pediatricians Ophthalmologists, Child Neurologists, Pulmonologists /Allergy specialists, Endocrinologists, Gastroenterologists, Cardiologists, and specialists in the premature babies program. The team is adapting to identified community needs and will continue to expand and change as necessary.
In order to accurately select the places the Care Mobile should visit, we work closely with BKUS, the Ministry of Health and the Latvian Union of Municipalities. These institutions are familiar with the health care landscape and can identify the greatest need for our health care programs.
Do parents have to pay for our services?
For a child under the age of 18 years, exams do not cost a cent. Nor is it necessary to get a referral through a family practitioner. However, we would appreciate if any information on the child s health status would be provided. This would facilitate the work of our specialist diagnostic tests and save time as well. And please, bring any official document that verifies the child s identity (personal code).
How many children can receive the Care Mobile support?
The working day usually starts from 10:00. The length of time needed for a patient visit varies, perhaps from half an hour to more than an hour. For this reason one specialist may take 15 to 23 children in a day. It is important to us that every child receives a full and high-quality medical examination, and therefore remember that our doctors work by prior arrangement. Ask your family doctor, nurse or social worker if you would like an appointment.
