Medicine Delivery Service Launched in Abu Dhabi

Medicine Delivery Service Launched in Abu Dhabi - Coming Soon in UAE
8 April 2020

People living in the emirate will be able to use the new service and order the necessary medicines right to their home.

This initiative was introduced by the efforts of the Department of Health – Abu Dhabi. It is one of the steps to ensure public health during the fight against the spread of coronavirus COVID-19. Both government and private pharmacies will be involved in the delivery of medicines. Most of these facilities are authorized and have permission to deliver medicine according to standards approved by the Department of Health. Standards include both the proper storage and packaging of medicines, as well as maintaining customer privacy.

Initially, the medicine delivery service was developed to serve those categories of the population that cannot come to the pharmacy, including the elderly, those who find it difficult to do this because of their health condition or distance from the pharmacy. But now everyone can use such a service, for this you just need to contact the pharmacy. The question of paying for the service is left to the decisions of pharmacies.

If a prescription is required to buy medicine, it must be provided to the pharmacy. And to receive the delivered goods, the buyer will have to present identity documents. All types of medicines are available for delivery, but if you want to order those medicines which sale is controlled by the state, you will need special authorization from the Department of Health.
