With Medipost Pharmacy’s convenient courier service, there is no need for you to visit a pharmacy ever again. Now you can get all your medication and expert advice from the comfort of your home.
Whether you live in a bustling metropolitan city or a rural town along a forgotten gravel road, making use of a courier pharmacy service has never been simpler or more convenient.
“We’ve made the process of placing orders quick and easy. Anyone with access to these methods of communication can make use of our services, which includes free delivery for chronic medication to any address within South Africa,” Rentia Myburgh, director of sales and marketing at Medipost Pharmacy.
“Once an individual has been to their doctor and obtained a prescription, they place the order for delivery via our website, email, WhatsApp or fax – whichever is most convenient.”
Medipost Pharmacy works with most medical schemes and claims directly on behalf of the patients. If the medical scheme doesn’t fund a product, customers can choose from various payment methods such as Snapscan, EasyPay, debit order, credit card or direct deposit.
“Beneficiaries of the compensation fund will be aware that Medipost Pharmacy is now contracted to take care of their medicine needs, including the delivery of medicine parcels,” Myburgh says. “The size of our national pharmacy means that we have been able to scale our operations to save money for healthcare funders and the patients who make use of our service.
“For instance, Medipost Pharmacy’s dispensing fees are considerably lower than the market average, and our customers are not billed for the administrative or courier delivery fee aspects of our service.”
Orders for self-medication products – health items sold without a prescription – can be placed with a simple telephone call or a WhatsApp message. Medipost Pharmacy customers also benefit from access to telephonic clinical advice from pharmacists and pharmacist’s assistants in their preferred official South African language.
“This excellent resource enables customers to discuss issues such as the potential side effects of medicine and directions for use with a properly qualified, registered professional in their language of choice,” Myburgh says.
“Most South Africans now carry a cellphone in their pocket and, through this simple technology, we can provide you with all the benefits of a professional
pharmacy service in the comfort of your own home,” she concludes.
