The Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC) has started to dispense blood-glucose meters for eligible patients at its health centres throughout the country.

The glucometer is used to determine the level of glucose concentration in blood, which allows patients to examine blood glucose levels regularly to avoid any complications caused by uncontrolled hyperglycemia in the long term, in addition to any short term complications.

Executive Director of Operation Department, PHCC, Dr Samya al-Abdulla said that as part of the continuous development of the health services offered, PHCC signed an agreement with Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) to manage the whole process of dispensing blood-glucose meters, free of charge to patients through its health centres throughout the country.

She pointed out that access to these devices was previously through HMC only, but now it will be available at PHCC centres and HMC.

Dr Samya al-Abdulla stressed that the PHCC is formulating an integrated health system that works according to scientific principles and in line with Qatar National Vision 2030.

She added that the PHCC is witnessing a qualitative leap in the health services provided at its centres.

Dr Samya explained that the PHCC is working continuously to upgrade and develop the services to meet the needs of the patients and improve the level of healthcare in the country.

Director of Logistics Services, PHCC, Ali al-Mahmoudi said that Qataris and residents can get the device and all related medical supplies from the health centres after obtaining the medical evaluation and description of the device by the competent doctor.
