    The Medical Commission services at the new Workers Health Centre at Mesaimeer, will be operational from next month, Gulf Times has learnt.

    There is a separate building for the Medical Commission behind the Workers Health Centre, which had a soft opening yesterday.

    The Medical Commission services include X-ray and blood test.

    The official opening of the Workers Health Centre is expected to be held later. “Since the workers’ clinic at Fereej Abdul Aziz in Doha closed, we started today. The Supreme Council of Health (SCH) and the Qatar Red Crescent (QRC) will hold a special ceremony later to officially inaugurate the centre,” an official said.

    The Workers Health Centre has about 150 medical staff including doctors, nurses and other paramedical staff.

    The facility is being jointly operated by the SCH and the QRC.

    A large number of workers were seen waiting for the services at the centre right from early morning. Situated near the Religious Complex and beside the Barwa apartment complex at Mesaimeer, the Workers Health Centre is a very spacious one with arrangements for treatment under several specialties.

    “There are 20 special clinics within the Workers Health Centre for treating various diseases as well as a 24x7 emergency clinic. The facility will be working in two shifts. Over 40 doctors are available at the clinic daily. More than 80 male nurses are employed in the clinic daily, in addition to the other paramedical

    The official also told that the Workers Health Centre will have all the facilities provided by the health centres under the Primary Health Care Corporation. In addition, ambulance services will be provided by the Hamad Medical Corporation.

    An SCH official had earlier disclosed that the Workers Health Centre will be able to treat about 32,000 workers a month. The health centre is established as part of a plan to open five workers’ health centres across the country and QRC had entered into an agreement with SCH to operate all of them for workers.GULF TIMES
