Service Description

Al Wakra Hospital under Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) provides a Drive-Thru Blood Coagulation Clinic for its patients, as they can have the Anticoagulation test done at their cars, without entering the hospital.

Patients are contacted one day ahead of their appointment to confirm their attendance. A nurse will complete the necessary procedures while wearing personal protective equipment, then will take a sample of the patient’s blood at the vehicle and observe the result at the same time.

For medicine follow-up, a specialized clinical pharmacist will communicate directly with the patient over the phone after test results are returned. Once the prescription is written, the patient will receive their medication through HMC’s home delivery service.

Fees

No fees apply for this service.
