Malaysia’s largest prescription pharmacy chain, Alpro Pharmacy, recently launched its e-pharmacy service to allow the public to seek doctor’s or pharmacists’ consultation and purchase prescribed medications online.
Rapidly adapting its service to help the community in dealing with the unprecedented demands of the Covid-19 pandemic, Alpro has been active in the online environment; delivering essential counselling, sharing valuable medical information and supplying medicines to patients and local communities through the official e-commerce platform, Alpro One Click (alprooneclick.com). It is backed by a dedicated team of professionals comprising doctors, pharmacists, nutritionists and dietitians.
“Following the recent spike in the number of Covid-19 cases reported in the country, we felt the e-pharmacy would make it easier for the public to consult a doctor, get a prescription and buy their medications by staying at home instead,” said Lee Yin Chen, Alpro’s Director of Branding, Promotion and Trade Marketing.
Alpro has been actively serving the community through the various phases of Movement Control Order (MCO) since last year and the pharmacy chain has specifically been introducing new services to continue supporting those who need medical attention or help.
“We hope to continue leveraging on our wide online reach and network of over 140 outlets nationwide to drive a positive impact in the society.
“The indefinite nature of the pandemic has meant that we now have to work overtime to stay engaged with the public, be it through public awareness sharing on social media or via live chats on Facebook Messenger to answer medical-related queries,” said Lee. – The Health
