As many as 27 of the 28 Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC) Health Centers are now fully operational and delivering quality healthcare services, with face-to-face consultations, if requested.

This comes as the PHCC started implementing the Phase 4 of its ‘Back to Normal’ plan, in tandem with the recent decision issued by the Council of Ministers to start implementing the last phase of the national response plan to the COVID-19 in Qatar.

Dr. Samya Abdulla, executive director of Operations at the PHCC said, “With the exception of the Rawdat Al Khail Health Center, which will remain as a COVID-19 dedicated Health Center, all other PHCC Health Centers have now fully restored their on-site health care services, including face-to-face visits with scheduled appointments, if requested by patients, but they will continue to offer virtual consultations to those patients who prefer that type of appointment.”

She explained that although Rawdat Al Khail Health Center will continue as a COVID-19-dedicated Health Center, with the number of COVID-related visits steadily decreasing, it will provide 24-hour Urgent Care and eventually resume all specialty services at a later date, via a separate pathway.

The Community Call Center, accessible via 16000, will continue to operate as usual, providing urgent telephone and video consultations when necessary. while the Dental and SMART clinic services within Health Centers have also now resumed 100% of their operational capacity.

Drive Thru swabbing services and COVID-19 Screening Clinic services will also continue to operate at Health Centers until further notice.
