Hi, I didn't have a telephone interview. I had registered with an agency who got in touch with me to say Sidra were interested in me- that was beginning March. Skype interview end of March and job offer at end of April. Now it's a waiting game! Once I have a date I need to get a police check and verification from NMC.

Hi All,

Also doing the waiting game. Have been interviewed for a position at Sidra and everything seems to be moving along smoothly.

Have a couple of questions. Myself and my wife will be looking to come out and while we're not massive party people,however we do enjoy the social aspect of life. For example, good restaurants, bit of sport etc. I've read that there is a massive expat presence in Doha so if anyone can spread some light on what to expect with regards to sports clubs(golf, tennis, football) that would be helpful.

If there are any radiographers out there would they be able to shed a little light on Sidra for me. I've heard great things about the department. And what are the packages that are being offered in the region of? so I have a ball park figure to negotiate with.

Thanks in advance guys.

Hello Apollo 83,

I was wondering if you eventually found a radiographer to shed more light on Sidra. I have an interview scheduled and would like to get some insights into what to expect. Salary range for radiographers and other helpful details, although I'll be interviewing for MRI Manager or Diagnostic Imaging Manager.

Thanks in advance.

hi everyone

I've just submitted my CV for a nursing job in Sidra. Just wondering if anyone can direct me to some cost of living estimates in Doha. Ive used numbeco which says it will be cheaper overall considering accommodation and bills will be provided. I will be the only earner for a family of four. Would a nurses wage be realistic to live on (and save a bit) considering Sidra will cover accommodation, schooling for the two kids, transport allowance flight allowance etc... leaving the salary for pending money essentially!
thanks for your help

I find the cost of life here cheaper than in my home country. But it depends from your life style and from which is your home country. I suppose anyway that, having 2 kids, you will have a normal family life. In this case Doha can be cheap.

Any advice regarding Qatar Foundation's salary range (start - end) for grades 16, 17, and 18, would be greatly appreciated.

Default Re: Sidra Hospital,Qatar

Has anyone heard any new Sidra hospital news? I have heard the following in the past year or so:

1. The Spanish contractors were fired.
2. A new Greek contractor was brought in.
3. The existing subcontractors were retained.
4. I too have heard Q1 of 2016 for the opening.

Anything else worth noting? Has Sidra mobilized any "rank and file" medical personnel yet (nurses, clinicians etc. )?

And if they have begun mobilizing staff where are they being housed?

Thanks in advance.

I emailed the HR department as I have been offered a job in another Middle East country. I asked how long it would be and they advised they have put my file on hold as there are some things they are tweaking at present however will contact us closer to the time. I asked if it would be 3-4 years as rumoured by agencies and they did not deny this and just said we will keep you updated. At the rate of things progressing in the last year I feel it will be atleast 3 years before it's fully operational.

Wow, three to four years...

We have a fair amount of money invested in this process, what with the document attesting and all. I wonder whether we can get any of it back...
