In order to priorities the critical in-hospital pharmacy service during this pandemic period and to assist in reducing the risk of COVID-19 transmission to healthcare workers and those in our care, we have suspended our in-hospital retail pharmacy services to the public. This will serve to reduce the traffic in our hospital
The closure will be effective from Monday, 30 March 2020 until further notice.
Alternative arrangements have be made to ensure that members of the public who receive chronic medication at Netcare pharmacies are not compromised during this period
Individuals who have a chronic or monthly medicine prescription with our pharmacies should please contact the pharmacy so that we can make arrangements to have their medication ready for them at a designated collection point in the screening area outside the hospital. Alternatively, our pharmacists will contact a retail pharmacy of the individual’s choice to assist with making arrangements to collect their prescriptions.
We are sure that you will appriaciate that we have made this decision in the best of us all, and thank you for your understanding.
