Umm Salal Health Center to provide 247 paediatric urgent care services

The Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC) has launched the Urgent Care Service for Children at Umm Salal Health Center around the clock, becoming the third centre after Muaither and Ruwais to provide this service to children and young people up to the age of 18.

The centre also offers urgent care services for adults, in addition to providing urgent health care for children, and with the provision of urgent medical care for children, the centre would primarily enable the patients with non-serious medical conditions to obtain health services covering mild illnesses, such as high fever, vomiting, mild or moderate asthma, rash, croup, navel secretions, or ear or eyes pains.

PHCC underlined that the steady increase of the population numbers triggers the increase in demands for high-standard urgent medical care which makes it the core element in the health care offered by PHCC which is working to essentially expedite access to high-quality urgent care for a wide spectrum of populations, where urgent health care will be afforded around the clock in other medical centres during the upcoming periods.

PHCC is currently providing urgent health services for adults in numerous health centres, including Rawdat Al Khail, Al Rayyan, Al Kaaban, Al Sheehaniya, Al Ruwais, Muaither, Abu Bakr Al Siddiq, Gharfa Al Rayyan and Umm Salal around the clock.
