Social Responsibility

As a pharmaceutical business, Pharma-Q believes that the well being of its employees is vital and ensures that the prevention and care for illnesses is a priority.

Pharma-Q has therefore set up an on-site clinic at the Johannesburg plant that provides the following services:

  • Chronic disease management
  • Attendance to injuries on duty and administration of Compensation Commissioner claims
  • HIV / Aids counseling / VCT
  • General employee wellness programs
  • Family planning
  • Involvement in safety matters
  • Guidance to first aiders
  • Monitoring of sick leave absenteeism
  • Limited primary healthcare services

We have a permanent on site clinic with a full time occupational health practitioner and a medical practitioner on a weekly basis to attend to the medical needs of our staff. The focus is on occupational health with pre-employment and periodical medicals being done on a regular basis.

We provide information sessions to our staff aimed at promoting medical awareness, for example Breast Cancer and HIV Aids awareness.

Pharma-Q offers training and development opportunities for our staff members to improve skills, knowledge and qualifications that are in line with the company's needs for example a pharmacist assistant qualification.

Internships to Medunsa second year Pharmacist students that form part of their curriculum are provided at Pharma-Q.
