Those of us with diabetes know that living with a chronic condition adds a whole extra layer of admin to our lives. As well as all the usual work, we have to remember to take our medication, pick up our medication, have our blood tests, etc etc etc. So any time I find something to make life easier for diabetics, I get very excited! At the moment I am very excited about Clicks, for 3 reasons: their chronic meditation repeat prescription service, their online clinic booking, and their free blood sugar screening during November.
(Oh! And because we’re giving away a R2000 gift card to one of our Diabetic South Africans this month!)
Clicks Repeat Prescription Service
The first few years after I was diagnosed with diabetes, I used to go to the pharmacy each month and stand in line to pick up my medication. I thought it was as easy as I could hope for – they had my prescription loaded so I didn’t have to remember to bring it with. Then I discovered the Clicks Repeat Prescription Service – so much easier! It’s free, simple to sign up for and so convenient. You get an SMS when your medication is ready every month, and because it’s pre-packed and pre-claimed it’s much quicker to pick up. You can pick it up from any Clicks Pharmacy and – even easier – upload your script online.
Online clinic booking
Another way Clicks is making life easier for people with diabetes (and others) is their online clinic booking. Go to https://clinicbookings.clicks.co.za/ and find your closest clinic, choose the time that suits you and your clinic visit is booked. I did it last month and it worked beautifully.
Free diabetes screening
This is one to share with your friends. Did you know that 3 in 5 people with diabetes in South Africa are undiagnosed? More than half the people in SA with diabetes don’t know they have it! Send your friends and family to Clicks during November and they can get a free diabetes screening. Simply book a clinic visit online.
