The Western Cape Department of Health said about 30 percent of patients in the Metro receives their medication through alternate site delivery service.  

Provincial Health Department MEC Theuns Botha said alternate sites such as care facilities are important and are used to reduce patient waiting times.

The province has received complaints about delivery of chronic medication parcels to the elderly and that the lines at clinics are too long. 

Ministerial Spokesperson Helene Rossouw said the Health MEC Theuns Botha visited several care facilities in and around Khayelitsha on Thursday to check the progress as well as the delivery of medication to the elderly.

Rossouw said the MEC was very much impressed with the progress in all these facilities and through his engagements with the patients it became clear that they are satisfied.
