The Primary Health Care Corporation(PHCC) will utilize its telemedicine services or "telehealth" medical and consultation services as it transitions 70% of its consultations to virtual consultations from 1 November to 22 December 2022, throughout the duration of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.
PHCC stated that the work system in its health centres will operate in systems of 70% virtual consultations remotely and 30% direct consultations through attendance at the health centre from 1 November.
The transition to virtual consultations will reduce the foot traffic at health centres during the tournament and will ensure ease of access to services for residents and citizens alike.
For Family Medicine, paediatric, detail procedures, ENT, dermatology, cancer screenings, and ophthalmology, in-person emergency and walk-in services will still be available.
PHCC notes that from 1 November 2022 to 22 December 2022 the following will take effect:
