    Qatar's spending will remain ‘elevated’ in the healthcare sector given the country's substantial reserves, a new study has claimed.

    The Gulf state is expected to spend $5.2bn (QAR19bn) on healthcare this year, compared to $4.7bn (QAR17.5bn) in 2014.

    BMI Research said Qatar's healthcare sector will experience strong growth over its forecast period on the back of sizeable expansion projects in the country.

    The healthcare market will continue to grow in Qatar as private sector engagement grows, coupled with increasing health insurance coverage.

    In Qatar's pharmaceutical sector, BMI Research projects an expenditure of $582m (QAR2.12bn), this year compared with $521.7m (QAR1.9bn) in 2014.

    According to BMI's Pharmaceutical Risk/Reward Index for the MEA matrix in Q3 2015, Qatar has retained its position in the MEA matrix of fourth place, with its score increasing to 55.5 out of 100 this quarter.

    According to earlier reports, BMI Research said the leading private hospitals in Qatar had urged authorities concerned to review the entire system for importing drugs and allow them to import several life-saving medicines directly.

    The development comes owing to an increase in the number of patients at private clinics and hospitals with the implementation of the national health insurance scheme. ArabianBusiness

    A much needed is for the expatriate community, mainly labourers who are coming in Qatar for the construction of FIFA related projects.

    I hope they will do something how to speed up the long queue in hospitals/clinics and the appointment system as well.

    All bachelor expats need more and more out patient clinics to cater them, as their numbers are growing up day by day.

    Many a times people whom I know who work for small contracting company approach me informing their company don't care about their medical bills and they have to bear all. They even don't get health cards provided by their company. Hope something good should happen for them for all their medical needs
