Medicare clinic was established in 2013 was a long-awaited project that rose from the dedication and drive to provide quality clinical care and better healthcare across The Gambia. We started off as a family through the initiative ideas of our founder, Mrs. Annmary Shallop aided by the late Dr Ulric O. E. jones who saw our vision and believed in us; he gave us strength to persevere through trying times and encouraged Medicare to take bigger steps in the healthcare world. Following our official opening the clinic operated as an out-patient , but quickly expanded into an inpatient hospital providing holistic care to each patient. Our team has expanded vastly from a busy gynaecological clinic to a multidisciplinary team providing a vast majority of specialties and consultants from around the world to meet individualised needs of each patient. We make it our mission to meet the needs of each patient and liaise with other healthcare professionals in the patients best interest. Medicare welcomes all service users across the country and abroad to join our family in building a safer Gambia with better healthcare found locally.
