Under the patronage of the Indian embassy in Doha, the Indian Community Benevolent Forum (ICBF) has recognised Dr Hanadi al-Hamad, medical director of Hamad Medical Corporation’s (HMC) Rumailah Hospital and Qatar Rehabilitation Institute, for her efforts and commitment to supporting labourers in Qatar.
Dr al-Hamad was presented with the ICBF Special Appreciation Award by Indian ambassador to Qatar Dr Deepak Mittal at the ICBF Day 2020 event, which was held last Saturday.
Dr al-Hamad thanked the ambassador, the president of ICBF in Qatar and all forum members for their efforts to promote co-operation between the Indian community and HMC. She said the recognition she received is a gesture of appreciation for the efforts and hard work of all HMC staff members who work tirelessly to deliver the safest, most effective and most compassionate healthcare to labourers in Qatar. “I am honoured to be here with you at the annual ceremony of the ICBF. I was pleased to take part in fruitful discussions with the ICBF and learn more about the social services it provides to labourers of the Indian community. We at Hamad Medical Corporation constantly co-operate with the ICBF to facilitate access for workers to healthcare services at the right time and place, including rehabilitation and long-term care services, by addressing language challenges and speeding up the processing of official correspondences,” said Dr al-Hamad.
She said HMC provides its treatment and rehabilitation services to all patients irrespective of their nationality or profession and in accordance with the highest international standards. She explained that patients who require rehabilitative care are cared for at Qatar Rehabilitation Institute, while those with acute conditions that require long-term care receive it at the Enaya centre or Rumailah Hospital and are offered all rehabilitation services, treatment and rehabilitation equipment they require.
The HMC community-based rehabilitation programme also offers rehabilitation services to patients and provides them with the rehabilitation support they need to return to their work and daily life while facilitating follow-up care for them at Qatar Rehabilitation Institute’s OPD clinics.
Moreover, HMC collaborates with the ICBF to facilitate the repatriation of patients who prefer to return to their home country by providing them with everything they need, such as medication, medical devices, detailed medical report and treatment plan, to ensure they can complete their treatment in their home country.
“In some cases, we arrange to have the patient accompanied by a medical team from HMC on the journey back to his/her country to ensure the continuity of care for the patient. The team also co-ordinates with the patient’s treating physician in his home country and educates the patient’s family on the best ways to care for the patient,” added Dr al-Hamad.
