Qatar Council for Healthcare Practitioners (QCHP) was established upon the Emiri decree no. 7, year 2013 as an independent regulatory council responsible of regulating healthcare practitioners working in the State of Qatar.
In alignment with the National Health Strategy 2018-2022 which is based on the principle that the improvement of any nation’s healthcare system does not only depend on maintaining public health and patient treatment, but it also considers healthcare system as a vital integral investment for the enrichment of the nation’s people and its future. Considering the latest development in the healthcare system during the past few years, it is imperative for QCHP to keep up with this development.
The healthcare sector in the State of Qatar is in a continuous expansion stage, and there are numerous newly opened healthcare facilities in the governmental and private sectors, leading to an increase in the number of healthcare practitioners. Consequently, the number of the licensing applications for healthcare practitioners willing to work in the healthcare sector is increasing significantly. QCHP has placed all the necessary plans to accelerate the licensing process for all the newly recruited healthcare practitioners. We have set up the standards that ensure the authenticity of the documents submitted by either healthcare practitioners or their facilities, as we believe in the importance of improving the efficiency and fitness of healthcare practitioners in the country.
The State of Qatar has prioritized developing its healthcare system in the country. Thus, in QCHP we always strive to update our vision and services provided in order to cope with this continuous development. One of the important services provided by QCHP is having an effective Complaints Management system in place in order to prevent and control any medical errors which may occur and handling any complaint received from the public and take proper actions accordingly.
In our journey of development, QCHP utilizes all local expertise in both governmental and private healthcare sectors in the country and will rely on the open door policy to receive all feedbacks and suggestions in order to benchmark with the best practices followed worldwide by the similar regulatory authorities in the developed countries.
We intend to collaborate with more stakeholders/ partners nationally and internationally through the accreditation of education institutions, healthcare institutions and other educational health programs, as well as to raise the aspiration of healthcare practitioners in the country to reach high level of efficiency and proficiency at all times, in order to achieve Qatar National Vision 2030 and National Health Strategy 2018-2022. We plan to implement an internationally recognized system for the accreditation of educational system associated with health care.
We will always be committed to the values of integrity, transparency, cooperation, customer respect through continuous innovation, uniqueness and excellence in service delivery and thus, maintain high standards of reputation.
