Dr Hanadi al-Hamad, Qatar’s National Health Strategy lead for Healthy Ageing and medical director of Rumailah Hospital and Qatar Rehabilitation Institute, has recognised representatives of the embassies of Bangladesh and Nepal and the Indian Community Benevolent Forum (ICBF) for their efforts in providing social and psychological support to patients of these nationalities.

In a statement on Saturday, Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) said it co-operates with the embassies of Bangladesh and Nepal and the ICBF to facilitate access for patients of these communities 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.

Dr al-Hamad said HMC provides 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 rehabilitation are cared for at Qatar Rehabilitation Institute, while those with acute conditions that require long-term care receive care at the Enaya centre or Rumailah Hospital and are offered all rehabilitation services, treatments and rehabilitation equipment they require.

The HMC community-based programme offers rehabilitation services to patients and provides them with support to return to their work and daily life while facilitating follow-up care for them in Qatar Rehabilitation Institute’s OPD clinics. Moreover, HMC collaborates with various embassies and community associations 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.

The honorees thanked Dr al-Hamad for the gesture of appreciation and thanked all HMC staff members for their continued efforts to ensure the delivery of high-quality care to patients in Qatar.
