In 1991 Medipost Pharmacy identified a need amongst its customers to have their medication delivered to them on a regular basis. Market research informed us that the need and opportunity for a national pharmacy extended beyond our existing customer base.
Developing this opportunity led towards the establishment of Medipost as the first national pharmacy in South Africa, and this remains our core business today. We offer our nationwide customers their chronic medication and other healthcare products at competitive fees and distribute the medication to them by courier, at no additional cost.
Today, Medipost dispenses approximately 795 000 prescriptions per month to satisfied customers.
Our service is specialised, reliable, fast and nationwide. Every prescription and every call matters. The very reason why Medipost Call Centre can handle calls in all 11 languages.
Medipost accepts the responsibility to ensure customer satisfaction on a consistent basis. Customer satisfaction means that the correct medicine items are delivered to the correct address on the agreed day.
