Soon, get medicine delivered to your homes in Abu Dhabi.


The new developments, the DoH said in line with its efforts to embrace digitalisation.

Soon medicines will be home delivered to patients in Abu Dhabi, the Department of Health – Abu Dhabi (DoH) announced on Monday.

The service will only be provided by licensed pharmacies which adhere to the requirements of DoH’s new standard, which states: “All pharmacies are obliged to provide pharmaceutical services in a safe and secure environment. This includes following drug storage guidelines and ensuring that the medicines delivered to patients are packaged and sealed properly, in addition to maintaining the confidentiality of patients’ information.”

It will be mandatory for patients to provide the pharmacy with an original medical prescription, whether digital or a hard copy, as well as verification documents of the patient or the recipient of the medicine.

The new developments, the DoH said in line with its efforts to embrace digitalisation.

“Home-delivery services are becoming increasingly more commonplace and the DoH has adopted this concept in the field of pharmaceuticals to continue ensuring the delivery of comprehensive and timely healthcare services to citizens and residents in Abu Dhabi.”

The DoH will set clear guidelines and requirements to ensure the efficiency of all pharmaceutical measures when it comes to delivering medicines. This will be achieved through monitoring and auditing pharmacies to ensure that health and safety procedures are being implemented.

“The DoH will regularly review the performance of the new standard, remaining committed to enhancing its outcomes and ensuring its efficiency and benefits to all patients.”

The DoH invites pharmacies who wish to provide the home delivery service to seek licensing by contacting their Health Facilities Licensing Department through mail:
