How To Change Your Phcc Health Center: Manpower Company In Qatar Shares 3 Easy Ways

If you live or work in Qatar, you probably have a government-issued health card to avail of the medical services of Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC) Health Center.

Where you first registered your health card is where your health center is usually located. However, there might be instances that your residence address changes. Your family or sponsorship status might also change.

In this case, you may feel the need to transfer to another health center that is near to your new area.

Did you know that all Qatari citizens, residents and expats who have health cards, including those with jobs in Qatar can change their health centers in 3 easy ways?

Here are the 3 options you can choose from in changing your health center:

1. Nar'aakom App

2. PHCC eService Portal

3. Visit PHCC Health Center in person

Before applying to change your health center, it is important to note which health center you are registered with as your records are dependent on PHCC’s patient registration policy.

-If you are eligible, you will be given a No Objection Certificate immediately or they may ask you to return within a few days to collect it.
