Did you know?

Alpha Script offers you the chronic patient:

An accessible nationwide network of accredited local healthcare providers that are linked to the centralized Alpha Script dispensing software to allow you the convenience to collect your medication at any Alpha Script accredited provider; or

If there is no accredited Alpha Script provider near you, you can contact Alpha Script directly and we will deliver the medication to any destination whenever you are travelling in South Africa…right to your doorstep. Click here to download the Alpha Script Pharmacy Courier Registration Form.

Why should you consider AlphaScript as your Chronic Provider?

AlphaScript and the accredited local healthcare provider both:

  • subscribe to the principle of one-to-one personal communication, professional counselling and furnishing of advice between the doctor, the pharmacist and the patient;
  • share the sentiment that the quality of chronic medication must be guaranteed through controlled conditions during transport and storage.

What do you need to do?

Simply ask your participating local AlphaScript network provider to send your chronic application form, and chronic prescription to AlphaScript and we will do the rest OR you can send your chronic prescription directly to AlphaScript Pharmacy to be delivered right to your doorstep if there is no AlphaScript network provider in your immediate demographic area!

  • will remind you on repeat 5 of 6 as well as repeat 6 of 6 through a Renewal SMS to renew your chronic prescription and will phone you after the expiry date if we still have not received your renewal prescription to prevent your condition of becoming uncontrolled and you potentially having to re-register for certain chronic diseases;
