Qatar continues to keep the country healthy by offering PHCC services for Qatari nationals and expatriate residents

In order to ensure that everyone in Qatar is safe when it comes to overall wellness and healthcare, the Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC) encourages everyone to register for its services given that it is the first point of contact in healthcare in the country.

The team boasts 30 health centres all over Qatar, with primary care services that everyone can take advantage of such as consultations with the family physician, urgent care, optometry, vaccinations, optometry and more. Health education as well as preventive care services can also be provided, along with screening tests, immunisation and routine checkups.

Urgent care services are available 24/7 at Rawdat Al Khail, Al Rayyan, Al Kaaban, Al Sheehaniya, Al Ruwais, Muaither, Abu Bakr Al Siddiq, Um Salal and Al Mashaf – these can be accessed by walk-in as well.

As such, it’s important for everyone to take the initiative and apply for a health card at the nearest Primary Health Care Centre. This can also be accomplished via Hukoomi, and will cost QR100 annually for expatriate residents. The annual fee will be QR50 for Qatari nationals. Requirements include a passport or a valid ID, along with two passport-size photos. Applicants must also provide a valid residence permit as well as proof of address. This can be a rental contract or even a utility bill for that address.

Additionally, a vaccination card is required for children, while for domestic staff, an ID of the sponsor is needed. After which, PHCC services can be accessed after registration with an appointment using the PHCC Naraakom app, and appointments can be done either in person or virtually.
