The State of Qatar has an exciting future. In a little under two decades, the Gulf state has been transformed through an investment programme funded by enormous oil and gas wealth. It is a very safe, dynamic and friendly place to work and live. Qatar’s healthcare sector has come a long way since the country’s first hospital opened its doors almost 50 years ago. Today, the sector boasts the most advanced medical equipment and highly qualified staff and a countrywide network of hospitals and healthcare centres.Our client is working with the Supreme Council of Health (SCH) and Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC).

His Highness the Emir created the Supreme Council of Health in 2005 and gave it responsibility to guide reform in Qatar in order to establish one of the world’s most admired and renowned health systems. The role of SCH is to create a clear vision for the nation’s health direction, set goals and objectives for the country, design policies to achieve the vision, regulate the medical landscape, protect the public’s health, set the health research agenda, and monitor and evaluate progress towards achieving those objectives.

The new Primary Healthcare strategy sets out recommendations that will transform care over the next five years. These include:

Supporting people to stay at home rather than be admitted to hospital.
A much greater focus on weight management and stopping smoking.
The establishment of a patient helpline for people to access health advice over the phone.
Continuity through a clear plan with the same clinicians for people with ongoing diseases.
A comprehensive programme of screening throughout people’s lives, to detect disease early.
