Local courier service, Go Rush, in collaboration with the Ministry of Health (MoH) is offering the public pharmaceutical delivery services right to your door step.
Launched in February 2019, the service aims to provide convenience to patients receiving monthly supplies of medicine the option to skip long queues at hospital pharmacies and health clinics.
With the recent outbreak of the COVID-19 virus in the sultanate, the service has helped minimise the need for people to be in public spaces and reduce the pressure at hospitals during this critical time.
Go Rush offers two types of deliveries: Standard (2 to 3 days) and Express (same day delivery) to the Brunei-Muara, Tutong and Belait districts, excluding remote areas.
The standard charge for each delivery to the Brunei-Muara district is $3, meanwhile the rate for interdistrict deliveries is $7.
Express delivery is only available for the Brunei-Muara district at $5.
According to the company’s statement, any type of medicine can be delivered through this service, with the exclusion of controlled drugs and psychotropics.
The medicine will be packed by the Department of Pharmaceutical Services of the Ministry of Health (MoH) in biodegradable tamper-proof sealed bags.
“All our delivery drivers and the entire team, are locals working hard to provide delivery options so that the public do not need to travel unnecessarily,” read the statement.
