How to get your medication delivered at home by QPost

By QLNews

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, last year, the Pharmacy Department at Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) expanded its medication home delivery service. 

The service is now available nationwide to all HMC patients.

The expansion of the service was made possible as a result of an ongoing partnership between HMC and Qatar Post and includes both new and refill prescriptions. 

The service is available to all HMC patients with a valid health card.
