The service will provide convenience to thousand of patients nationwide for relieving them from having to spend hours queuing-up to receive medication.
The service is available at 26 major hospitals nationwide.Patients only need to register once for the service and the medication would then be sent at a cost of RM3.50 within the Putrajaya area, RM5 to all other parts of Peninsular Malaysia and RM8 in Sabah and Sarawak.
The medication will be delivered through the Pos 1Malaysia service. To provide safety and security of the posted items, all medicines will be packed by the pharmacy staffs while serial numbers would enable postal staffs to track the parcels.
