The CCMDD programme helps people with chronic conditions to adhere to their medication much more easily by offering them a convenient medication collection service.
The service is free.
Collection is easy and quick, at convenient pick-up points with extended opening hours.
Crowded clinics can be avoided, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
You can collect three-months’ worth of medication at once.
You visit the clinic only twice a year.
There is no need to travel long distances to or wait in long queues at public facilities.
You can nominate two people, like family members, to collect your medication for you. This is useful for older people, patients who are not mobile, and those with weaker immune systems who may be in isolation due to their increased risk of COVID-19 infection.
There are seldom medicine shortages at these pick-up points so your treatment is not likely to be interrupted, and this helps in keeping your condition stable.
Your medication is packed in a sealed box, so no-one can see what’s inside your parcel.
