We are approaching the winter season and Bestmed would like to remind you that the annual influenza (flu) vaccine is available to all Bestmed members and dependants, and is funded from the Scheme’s preventative care benefit and not from your available day-to-day benefits or savings. The vaccines and administration thereof are available from any Bestmed network pharmacy or Bestmed medical centre without a co-payment.

The Best Way to Beat Burnout

Statistically, mental health disorders affect one in every four people in South Africa. This means that the daily lives of more people than we probably expect are affected in varying degrees. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on those with pre-existing mental health conditions and has also seen many more developing mental health issues due to financial stress and the uncertainty of what the future holds.
