Supreme health council shutters two clinics, blacklists 41 medical professionals in 2011
Qatar’s Supreme Council of Health shut down two private healthcare clinics and temporary closed down 20 more last year for “procedural errors such as failure to renew the licence or defects in the buildings.”
The SCH also blacklisted 41 doctors and nurses for forging documents to procure a licence to practice in Qatar.
The Peninsula reports:
“Once we have blacklisted a practitioner, they will be banned from working in all the GCC countries and their names will be circulated to health authorities all over the world,” said (Dr. Jamal Rashid Al Khanji, director of the Health Quality Management Department at SCH)…
The facilities that faced temporary closure included 10 poly clinics, three dental clinics, three solo clinics, two laboratories, one home care centre and one X-ray unit.
Glad to hear that the SCH closely monitors medical care here. But in the interest of public safety, let’s name and shame, people!
