COVID-19 and delivery of health care items and prescriptions from my pharmacy
The world is in panic as individuals are confined to isolation, businesses are shut down, schools are closed and supermarkets lack basic supplies (the ToiletPaperPocalypse). So what can you do about getting your basic medications and health care supplies if you are in isolation (either voluntary or forced), and unable to get to your local pharmacy.
Much of the difficulty is around obtaining prescription medication. We always recommend talking to your pharmacist about this as there are a few legalities, but many ways to help supply medication even if you can't pick it up yourself. At SuperPharmacyPlus we use a handy app (Medadvisor) on a regular basis normally. This allows people to keep their prescriptions on file, and to order them for delivery or pickup as needed. This is a great option as it lets you know when you are running out, but also allows your doctor to send repeats directly to the pharmacy, and for you to take a photo of your new scripts and have them ready for collection from the pharmacy.
For those in the greater Brisbane Area (think Caboolture to Yatala to Ipswhich), SuperPharmacyPlus gives access to same day (1-3 hour) delivery using StarTrack and Australia Post. See our delivery page for more information.
The first thing to do is to contact your local pharmacy. They may have an express delivery service, or delivery service operated by the pharmacy that can help you in your time of need.
Alternatively, feel free to contact us for a quote / organise a delivery to you with our products.

The important thing to remember during this outbreak is to stay calm, communicate with your relevant health professionals, and reduce the transmission of disease by staying away from close contacts of the disease.
