As one of the few independently owned pharmacies in Pietermaritzburg, Ballims Pharmacy was first opened by Mr Ballim about 40 years ago. The pharmacy was run by the Ballim family until the end of October 2008. It was then taken over by the current owner.
The pharmacy is well known by the Pietermaritzburg and Kwazulu Natal Midlands region as a household name for medication, health shoes and cosmetics.
We are contracted to most Medical Aids. The Pharmacist and Dispensary staff can help with chronic authorisations and changes to treatment. We offer the best quality, affordable medication.
Our dedicated staffs are always ready to help, providing the best advice and medication for your healthcare needs. We have 3 qualified pharmacists with a total of over 35 years combined experience amongst them, with a vast amount of knowledge in healthcare and medicines who are always ready to assist in any situation.
The pharmacy aims at providing fast, efficient and accurate service without compromising on quality. Ballims Pharmacy is constantly looking for ways to improve its service to, you, the valued customer. Recent changes include the introduction of a new digital signing and storage of prescriptions system…..just another way to save on paper wastage and the waiting time for the patients and thereby doing our part on saving our environment and our planet.
A limited clinic service is available which will be expanded in the near future.
