Gauteng gets 39 smart locker sites for safe medicine collection

Gauteng now has 39 new Collect & Go smart locker sites which means that patients with chronic conditions won’t have to queue any longer at clinics to collect their monthly medication. Collect & Go is a partnership between Right ePharmacy and the Department of Health. 

Patients living in and around Gauteng have begun collecting their medicine parcels from these smart lockers with numbers increasing steadily, as more people realise the benefits of using this quick, safe and convenient medicine collection service. 

Fanie Hendriksz, managing director of Right ePharmacy, says, “Collect & Go has taken patients who are doing well on their medication out of congested healthcare facilities during Covid-19. With our easy medicine collection service, social distancing is easy, especially as we all try to prevent a second wave of Covid-19.

“We are helping people stay on their medicine and maintain strong immune systems. If someone with a chronic condition that needs medicine to stay well stops taking their medicine, their illness will increase and it will weaken their ability to fight Covid-19,” he explains.

To access Collect & Go, patients must first be registered by their healthcare worker at their clinic. 

Collect & Go is very easy to use. “Your medication is stored in a locker. When you collect it, you enter a one-time PIN that is sent to you via SMS. You will collect a two-month supply of medication. You only need to go to the clinic for a follow-up visit every six months and you will get a reminder SMS for that appointment, so you don’t forget. A friend or family member can also collect the medicine from the smart locker, providing you give them your PIN,” says Hendriksz.

Sifiso Shabangu, Gauteng team lead for Collect & Go in Gauteng says that, “Collect & Go is about making life better for those in Gauteng. I and my team are available to help patients with their medicine or collection queries. We also have a helpline for queries.” 

Collect & Go smart lockers follow on from the popular ATM pharmacies that were introduced by Right ePharmacy in 2018. Gauteng’s ATM pharmacies are located in  Soweto atBaragwanath Mall in Diepkloof, Ndofaya Mall in Meadowlands; at Bambanani Mall in Diepsloot and at Alex Plaza in Alexandra. These various collection options help patients stay on their treatment by making medicine collection easy. 

The helpline number is 080 111 2228 and the website is www.collectandgo.co.za.
