Primary care centers are usually the first point of contact for patients with non-emergency conditions in Qatar. If the primary care doctor feels that more specialist care is need at one of HMC’s hospitals, they will refer the patient in to HMC for an appointment. A similar referral process also operates between HMC, Sidra Medicine and the private sector provider. Patients can also be referred back to a primary health center for follow up after receiving treatment at an HMC hospital.
