Qatar's public healthcare sector providers are collaborating to deliver a national awareness campaign to raise awareness of emergency and urgent healthcare services in Qatar. The campaign aims to highlight the wide range of available emergency and urgent care services and help patients make the best choice for their medical care needs.

The campaign is being run by the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH), Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC), Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC), Sidra Medicine, and Qatar Red Crescent (QRC) and will see awareness messages delivered to Qatar's population through a wide range of channels from today until the end of February.

Qatar's healthcare sector has grown significantly in recent years and there are now more options for patients with emergency and urgent medical care conditions than ever before.

These services are delivered across the public healthcare system: Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC): the National Ambulance Service, seven emergency departments, five pediatric emergency centers, and the Urgent Consultation Service helpline.

Primary Healthcare Corporation (PHCC): 10 Urgent Care Units provide the service for adults, and five out of the 10 provide the service for both adults and paediatrics, within its primary health centres and the Urgent Consultation Service helpline.

Sidra Medicine: Pediatric Emergency Department (Public), Pediatric Urgent Care Center (Private) and Women's Obstetrics Triage and Urgent Care (Private).

MoPH/Qatar Red Crescent (QRCS): Three Urgent Care Centers.

As part of the awareness campaign, the healthcare partners have launched an emergency and urgent care website, providing details of all service options in Qatar and advice on when and how to access them - www.whereforyourcare.qa
