Al-Zulfi Hospital's Medicine Delivery Service Reaches over 800 Beneficiaries
09 June 2020

Al-Zulfi General Hospital has provided medicine home delivery services to over 800 beneficiaries, as part of the precautionary and preventive measures put in place by Riyadh Health Affairs General Directorate. These measures aim to prevent COVID-19 spread by limiting gatherings, providing all services to inpatients and outpatients, and encouraging citizens and residents to stay at home. Beneficiaries can contact the hospital by phone and give the pharmacy their file number and the medicines required to be prepared and delivered via mobile apps.​

The work method includes the hospital’s external pharmacy receiving patients’ prescriptions. After the examination and confirmation are conducted, the approved prescription is packed. Prescriptions of each patient are also filed separately. The pharmacy then contacts the patients and informs them of the delivery details of their medications and medical supplies. A team of volunteers at the pharmacy delivers the medications on specific times that patients are informed of via text messages.
