​​​​According to Al-Jouf Health Affairs, over the past year (2018), 28 violations were recorded against medical complexes and pharmacies, with 18 against medical complexes, 9 against pharmacies, in addition to a closure decision against a medical complex. These decisions have been issued against them for their non-compliance with regulations.
