What kind of services will we be offering

What kind of clinical services will Sidra be offering from 1st of May onwards?

The Sidra Outpatient Clinic will be offering outpatient care based on diagnoses, observation, consultation and treatment. These services do not require an overnight hospital stay.

From the 1st of May 2016, services at the Sidra Outpatient Clinic will include dermatology, pediatric general surgery consultation, obstetrics, radiology, pathology, pharmacy and laboratory services.

Please note that as it is a phased opening, referrals to the Sidra Outpatient Clinic will coincide with when Sidra’s clinics will be phased for launch. Consultations with specialized doctors will take place at either HMC or Sidra during the transition period.  Patients will be seen (triaged) based on the severity of their condition.

Since there is an Antenatal (Obstetrics) clinic at the Sidra Outpatient Clinic from 1st of May onwards, will there be facilities to deliver babies there?

There will be no deliveries in the Sidra Outpatient Clinic. 

Pregnant patients who are referred to Sidra will have access to routine prenatal care, education and testing. Sidra’s doctors and nurses will closely monitor the health and well-being of both the mother and her baby.

For pregnant woman, if it has been determined that their antenatal care will be at Sidra, there will be co-ordination between HMC and Sidra to schedule their appointments.

Pregnant patients who have been referred to Sidra for care will give birth at Hamad Medical Corporation-Women’s Hospital (HMC-WH). They will be admitted to HMC-WH during pregnancy for any emergency care or assessment where the Sidra physicians will work collaboratively with their HMC colleagues.

Will there be other clinical services in the future?

Yes. Plans are currently in place to offer more pediatric services including neonatology consultation, developmental pediatrics, child and adolescent mental health, Ear Nose and Throat (ENT), pre-operative anesthetic assessment and preparation.

Please note that as it is a phased opening, referrals to the Sidra Outpatient Clinic will coincide with when Sidra’s clinics will be phased for launch. Consultations with specialized doctors will take place at either HMC or Sidra during the transition period.  Patients will be seen (triaged) based on the severity of their condition.

A full range of specialist medical clinics will also be rolled out in the near future. Sidra will be making announcements about new services in the months to come.

Will the Sidra Outpatient Clinic offer emergency services?

No, Sidra will not be offering emergency services at the Outpatient Clinic. If there is a medical emergency, adult patients are advised to go to Hamad’s Emergency Department. Parents are advised to take their children to HMC’s Pediatric Emergency Centers.

The Sidra Outpatient Clinic is based strictly on a referral system. This means that all patients coming to Sidra will be referred to a specialized healthcare professional after they have been assessed by their secondary or primary healthcare practitioner.

For example, if a pediatric patient from Hamad Medical Corporation or Primary Health Care Corporation or one of HMC’s Pediatric Emergency Centers requires specialized care – particularly related to dermatology or pediatric general surgery consultation, the patient will be directed to see a healthcare practitioner at the Sidra Outpatient Clinic.

If you are a pregnant (obstetric) patient receiving your antenatal care at Sidra, you will have to go to HMC’s Women’s Hospital to deliver your baby or for any emergency.

Please note that as it is a phased opening, referrals to the Sidra Outpatient Clinic will coincide with when Sidra’s clinics will be phased for launch. Consultations with specialized doctors will take place at either HMC or Sidra during the transition period.  Patients will be seen (triaged) based on the severity of their condition.

Patients should not come to Sidra if they do not have a referral from their existing healthcare practitioner from HMC or PHCC.

How will appointments at Sidra be scheduled?

Once a referral has been made, a patient’s existing healthcare provider will coordinate with them to schedule and confirm a consultation with a Sidra physician. For pregnant woman, if it has been determined that their antenatal care will be at Sidra, there will be co-ordination between HMC and Sidra to schedule their appointments.

Please note that as it is a phased opening, referrals to the Sidra Outpatient Clinic will coincide with when Sidra’s clinics will be phased for launch. Consultations with specialized doctors will take place at either HMC or Sidra during the transition period.
