CCMDD: Five easy steps to getting started

You have probably heard about CCMDD − the service launched by the National Department of Health as an NHI initiative that provides access to a network of convenient, self-nominated pick-up points where stable public-sector patients can collect their chronic medication.

Over 300 000 people in Durban use the CCMDD service and are loving the convenience of collecting their repeat prescriptions from more than 200 pick-up points across the municipality − where queuing is minimal and stock shortages are rare. The service supports them to adhere to their medication and remain stable.
