Right ePharmacy has launched the collect and go smart lockers for chronic medication in Gauteng. Patients with chronic medical conditions can now quickly collect their monthly medicine from a smart locker when and where it suits them. This was announced by Right ePharmacy on Friday.
Collect and go smart lockers is an introduction following the popular ATM pharmacies that were implemented by Right ePharmacy in 2018. Collect and go smart locker sites have been set up at 39 sites in Gauteng. Gauteng team lead for collect and go Sifiso Shabangu, says that collect and go smart locker will assist patients on chronic meds.
“If you have a condition such as asthma, HIV/Aids, diabetes or high blood pressure, and you need regular medication, Collect and Go will help you stay on your medicine so that you can stay healthy and live a full productive life.”
“It’s really easy to use, but you have to register at your clinic. Speak to your healthcare worker. If your condition is stable, they will register you.” Shabangu added.
Right ePharmacy PR consultant Tshilidzi Matidza, said that improving the collect and go smart lockers made it convenient for the people.
“No more long queues or taking time off from work to collect medication, you choose your locker location. You can ask a family member to collect the parcel on your behalf – they just need your one-time pin; it does not cost you anything. Social distancing is easy, protecting you from Covid-19, thus having a safe and easy to use service,” Matidza said.
Gauteng’s ATM pharmacies are located in areas such as Soweto at Baragwanath Mall in Diepsloot and Ndofaya Mall in Meadowlands. These various collection options help patients stay on their treatment by making medicine collection easy.
