Established in 1995, Shepmed Pharmacy started out as a small family run Pharmacy in New Germany, Durban.


In 2002 current owners and Pharmacists, Ismail and Mohammed served the community at Prince Mshiyeni Hospital in Umlazi. Both sharing the same passion and vision to provide affordable and quality healthcare, Ismail and Mohammed bought Shepmed pharmacy in 2005 and are personally responsible for running and managing operations on a daily basis and are complimented by a team of knowledgeable staff members who are eager to serve our customers.

We are continually enhancing the services we offer and are always looking for ways to improve on the pharmaceutical services we offer our customers.

Shepmed was built on an ethos of “old-fashioned family values”. However, increasingly, the concept of the “trusted local pharmacist that everyone knows” is unfortunately being threatened by Chain Store Pharmacies.

We understand that keeping costs to a minimum is very important to our customers and to that end we at Shepmed have remained committed by scrapping the idea of admin fees and charging within medical aid rates. We also offer good cash prices to the private patients as well.

Contracted to all Medical Aids


The Pharmacy has since gone from strength to strength and is now reaching out to patients well beyond the New Germany area.


Shepmed Pharmacy’s exponential growth can be attributed to a well-stocked, varied and quality product range that meets our customers’ pharmaceutical and healthcare needs. In order to remain competitive we continue to maintain our policy of low prices and build on our valued customer relationships.
