In the emirate, you can have anything delivered to your door, from petrol and daily groceries to your favourite Starbucks order or a three-course meal from the most sought-after fine-dining haute spot, one UAE hospital group has raised the game and is offering at-home PCR testing.
Instead of queueing for a test at the mall, your nearest hospital, medical centre or clinic, or drive-through, for Dhs250, Medcare will send a fully gowned-up nurse to your home, office or address of your choice to administer your test. Your sample is then submitted to a certified lab for examination, and the results of your test will be shared back with you within 24 to 48 hours.
This is the latest in a series of home service offered by Medcare which include visits from doctors, nurses, and physiotherapists, and also selected vaccinations and lab tests.

You will be asked to share your name, Emirates ID, contact email, address, preferred service and preferred date.
