Opened in July 2013, the National Diabetes Center in Hamad General Hospital is staffed by a multi-professional team of over 25 dedicated professionals, including endocrinologists, retinal specialists, podiatrists, nutritionists and education specialist physicians, nurses, pharmacists and technicians who all work together to improve diabetes screening, management and prevention.

The National Diabetes Center provides a ‘one stop shop’ that offers all specialties and services, from initial screening through to treatment, health education and the provision of medication and equipment to the entire family.

Through developing individualized treatment plans built around a patient’s specific needs, the National Diabetes Center allows patients to play a greater role in making choices about their treatment.

The facility features diabetes treatment clinics, a special pharmacy for diabetic patients and diabetes educational units, in addition to dietetics and podiatry (foot care) services.
