The Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC) has announced the start of home delivery service of medicines in cooperation with Qatar Post, by communicating on phone numbers through the “WhatsApp” app, which was allocated to each health centre.
In a stament, the PHCC said the home delivery service aims to limit patients’ visits to health centres and to assure the need of community members to stay at home to curb the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
Patients can request for the medicine delivery service via WhatsApp numbers for each health centre from Sunday to Thursday (from 8 am until 2 pm and from 4 pm to 10 pm). There will be no service during the weekend (Friday and Saturday). The PHCC added that the medicine delivery service was launched during the first stage for Qatari citizens only, and it will be made available to all soon, for free.
As for medicine charges, they are free for Qataris and for the category exempt from paying the fees and for citizens of the Gulf Cooperation Council states. For the non-exempt category and residents, the payment will be by bank card. Cash is not accepted.
The PHCC stressed on the continuous work to facilitate access to all services by the best available means in order to maintain the continuity of their provision and develop them in a manner commensurate with the current situation.
