Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC) has said that virtual medical consultation was provided to over 600,000 patients through 2022 and to over 2.4 million patients since the service was launched during the COVID-19 pandemic.

During the year 2022, about 435,000 patients were able to book virtual appointments with their family doctor to obtain general health advice, while other services such as mother and child health, nutrition, health educator, smoking cessation, and even physiotherapy saw a high turnout of patients through virtual medical consultations, PHCC said.

PHCC affirmed that the success of virtual medical consultation service in its health centers has exceeded expectations, and therefore, it service will continue in order to provide access to high-quality health care, and to re-dispense medicines without physical visit to the health center.

The Executive Director of the Operations Department at PHCC, Dr Samia Al Abdullah, said that after the initial spike in the number of virtual consultations provided to more than one million patients during 2020 as a result of COVID-19, levels of demand for services have largely stabilized in all medical specialties, and the demand for virtual consultations has significantly improved.

To manage healthcare services during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC) strengthened its telemedicine services and split 70% consultations to virtual starting from November 1, 2022.
