Provision of Health Services
In the United Arab Emirates, the provision of Services will occur from the Health at Hand DMCC premises located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and licensed by the Dubai Health Authority under license number DHA-FL-0077486. The Platform Doctors are licensed with the Dubai Health Authority.
By accessing the Site and using the Services, you acknowledge that you are accessing a licensed health facility located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates and governed by Dubai Health Authority (DHA)
There will be times when your Health at Hand doctor will not be able to provide an assessment using telehealth consultation. Health at Hand doctors are trained to assess the appropriateness for conducting telehealth consultations on a case-by-case basis. They will ensure that each consultation meets the standards required for patient examination and evaluation: if they are unable to make a full, adequate assessment for advice, based on high quality evidence, they will recommend you visit a doctor in a physical clinic.
To access Health at Hand Services, you must create an account (“Account”). By signing up for an Account with us, you become a registered user with access to certain password-restricted areas of the Site and to use certain Services offered on and through the Site.
Each Account is identified by a unique email address. You agree to create your Account accurately and truthfully, including but not limited to your email address, name, mobile telephone number, date of birth and password, and that such personal details are kept up to date.
You agree that you are only communicating with us for the Services using your own Account and personal details (or, if relevant, that of a minor linked with your Account).
Your Account details are personal to you and you are solely responsible for maintaining their confidentiality, as you remain liable for all activity that occurs under your Account. You agree to prohibit anyone else from using your Account.
We aim to reconcile duplicate member Accounts. If we identify multiple Accounts owned by the same User, we will automatically combine Accounts. You will be informed of this by email.
It is your responsibility to inform us of any duplicate Accounts by contacting us at email@example.com.
You agree that we are able to immediately invoice your Account for all fees and charges due to us, and you agree to pay all fees in accordance with the payment and billing terms in effect at the time when the Services are provided. Any such fees and charges will be billed to the debit/credit card (this may include but is not limited to Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discovery) you provided on your Account and you agree that no further notice or consent is required for us to debit such amounts from your debit/credit card.

This Site, including any content or information contained within it or any Service, is provided “as is,” with all faults, with no representations or warranties of any kind, either expressed or implied, including, but not limited to, the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, quality of information, quiet enjoyment, and title/non-infringement.

We do not warrant that files available for download will be free of viruses, worms, trojan horses or other destructive programming. You are responsible for implementing procedures sufficient to satisfy your needs for data back up and security.
Platform Doctors are able to apply for eReferrals through the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) online eReferral system (“eClaimLink”). An eReferral allows you as an insured member to access a specialty physician as recommended by a Platform Doctor. If you need to see a specialist, your Platform Doctor will complete the online DHA eReferral request, specifying which speciality you require based on their diagnosis, and provide you with an eReferral reference number.
We cannot guarantee the eReferral request will be approved and issued by your Insurer or the DHA.
Doctors working on the Health at Hand platform do not recommend specific named third party specialty providers or physicians. We are not responsible for any services or actions performed by a specialist resulting from the eReferral.
Sick Leave Certificates
Platform Doctors are able to issue and dispense electronic Sick Leave Certificates issued by the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) at their sole discretion. If you require a DHA Sick Leave Certificate, the Platform Doctor will submit an electronic application using the DHA online sick leave system. The Platform Doctors reserve the right to refuse any request for a DHA Sick Leave Certificate application. The DHA charges a fee of 70 AED for this service which must be paid in full by the User prior to the submission of the application to the DHA. We will charge your saved credit or debit card once you have provided consent for this payment. If you are a Corporate Subscription Member or a subscriber without saved debit or credit card details, we will ask you to provide valid debit or credit card payment details. Sick Leave Certificates cannot be issued for any date prior to the date of the consultation. The duration of the Sick Leave is determined by the Platform Doctor at their sole discretion and requests for extra leave days cannot be accommodated. All Sick Leave Certificates issued for a duration of 5 or more days are subject to approval by the DHA and may require additional documentation. We cannot guarantee the DHA will approve the sick leave and we cannot provide a refund for rejected applications. Users will receive a notification once the Sick Leave Certificate is available. Sick Leave Certificates can be downloaded from the Doctor’s Report in the app.
We charge no additional administration fee for this service; the DHA issues a mandatory 70 AED fee for each Sick Leave Certificate which must be paid by the User before the Platform Doctor completes the DHA Sick Leave Certificate application. Consultations with Platform Doctors for the purpose of requesting a DHA Sick Leave Certificate will be charged as normal, either as pay-as-you-go users or included within unlimited subscriptions or on corporate accounts.
At your request, Platform Doctors are able to submit an order for medication delivery on your behalf to our Medication Delivery partner. Medication Delivery is provided by 800 Pharmacy, a TelePharmacy service duly licensed and regulated by the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) under license number 555753.
Your Platform Doctor will advise you on the medication, dosage, and duration of the treatment and will ask you if you would like the medication to be delivered to your location. Upon your confirmation, an order will be placed with our Medication Delivery partner and noted on your medical report. In order to submit your request for Medication Delivery, Health at Hand may need to provide the TelePharmacy with your personal information including Name, Date of Birth, Gender, Contact Details, Insurance details, Emirates ID, Diagnosis, and Treatment Plan.
Once the order has been submitted to the Medication Delivery partner, the remaining process will be completed directly between you and the TelePharmacy. You will receive a call from our Medication Delivery partner to confirm your address and order and you may be charged a delivery fee of AED 5 payable directly to the TelePharmacy.
By using the Site and the Services, you acknowledge that Health at Hand is not involved in the delivery process and assumes no responsibility for unavailability or substitution of medicines, inaccurate or incomplete fulfilment of prescription, inaccurate declaration of prices, delay in delivery, inappropriate use of personal data, or any other issues or concerns related to Medication Delivery after submission of the order.

If all payment methods submitted by you are declined for payment of your Subscription Fee, your Subscription will be cancelled.

Promotions, Vouchers, Competitions and Prize Draws
From time to time we may run competitions, free prize draws and/or other promotions (“Promotional Events”) on the Site. Any such Promotional Events will be subject to additional terms and conditions that will be made available to you at the relevant time.
We will conduct the Promotional Events equitably, promptly and efficiently and deal fairly and honourably with you and other potential participants. Conduct of the entire Promotional Event, including decisions on the eligibility of persons to enter and validity of entry and prizes, shall be our responsibility. We will avoid causing unnecessary disappointment. Entry conditions which need to be met will be clearly stated and all Promotional Events will only be available to those aged over eighteen (18) years.
All Promotional Events will have a closing date. All entrants who have met the conditions of entry will be eligible for selection as the winner. Only one (1) entry per person will be accepted for any prize draws.

The following condition apply to all vouchers, whether used by you or any other person accessing the Site:
In the event we are unable to provide our Service using video technology for any reason inside or outside of our control, we will switch our inbound video calls to a telephonic outbound call-back service. Our telephonic call-backs are routed through a third-party call service centre. If a User places a video consultation request on the app and the call-back mechanism is active, the User will receive a message within the app informing them that they will receive a call from a Platform Doctor on their mobile number provided in their profile. The call centre will automatically place an outbound call to the User connecting them directly with the Platform Doctor. This routing does not use a call-centre operator. The User may experience a delay in the call-back service if there is a queue. The User will not be charged for the call if they are located within the United Arab Emirates (UAE), however if the User is located outside of the UAE we cannot guarantee the User’s mobile carrier will not make charges to the User.
We reserve the right to switch our Service to call-backs at any time and we will endeavour to make reasonable effort to inform Users when this switch is made. If a consultation is conducted via telephonic call-backs, we will consider this to fulfil our Service provision. In the event that your Platform Doctor determines that an adequate consultation could not be conducted in the absence of video technology, we may at our sole discretion choose to offer you a full or partial refund. Refunds of any kind offered in this situation are only applicable to pay-as-you-go users
