Done in 5 minutes flat: Follow these 4 steps to get emergency prescriptions over the holiday, any time and from anywhere in South Africa
Travelling during the holiday season often brings unexpected challenges, one of which can be managing prescription medications. Whether you've lost your medication or run out while away from home, it's not always possible to contact your regular doctor for a refill.
This is where the Udok app steps in to provide a quick and reliable solution for emergency prescriptions at any time and from anywhere in South Africa.
With the holiday hustle and bustle, the last thing you need is the stress of sorting out prescription issues. Udok understands this urgency and offers a streamlined process to get your prescription quickly, without compromising on professional healthcare standards.
First things first, head over to the Udok App. Here, you can either register for a new account or log in if you're already registered (in which case, skip straight to step 5). The process is straightforward and user-friendly.
Security is key, so once you’ve registered, we will send you an email with a verification link to click to verify your email address. This ensures secure and reliable communication between you and the Udok team.
To provide you with the best care, Udok requires some basic personal information. (Don’t worry, it’s just a few questions, very quick to complete.) This helps in personalising your consultation and addressing your needs accurately.
Finally, request a consultation. The process is unbelievably quick; one of our doctors will see you in minutes. After a quick consult, the doctor can write you an emergency prescription.
You can fill your emergency prescription at any pharmacy. And we can even help you find your nearest one.
The consultation process is remarkably efficient, taking about 5 minutes – much faster than driving to a clinic or hospital. And the cost? Just R348. That's 40% cheaper than the average private medical consultation in South Africa. Learn more about how much online doctor consultations cost.
The cost of your medication is, naturally, separate. You pay that at the pharmacy dispenser.
