How to make your pharmacy visits safer and quicker

How to make your pharmacy visits safer and quicker

Our Pharmacy Services

25-03-2020

If you need to visit our pharmacy to collect your repeats for regular medication , think about leaving your repeats on file at the pharmacy. You only need to phone us and order the medication you require.

 

We can prepare your prescriptions and they will be ready for you when you call in (please allow a few hours in case we are busy).

 

This way you only need to visit the pharmacy once and you won’t have to wait around for too long.

Remember that we prefer tap and go cards for payment and if you have any questions about your medication, please ask the pharmacist via the phone or when you are collecting your prescriptions.

Thank you Bank of Melbourne Berwick

COMMUNITY 🥰
What a LOVELY surprise when Jenny and some of her team from Bank of Melbourne Berwick popped in this morning to deliver some nourishment for our team.

Not only that, but they ordered everything from another local business, Populus , at 74 High Street, so they are really sharing the love with TWO local businesses.

At a time when our team is working extra hard, and occasionally dealing with some not-as-understanding-as-they-could-be customers, this meant EVERYTHING.

Truly, some of our team had tears in their eyes at the thoughtfulness of this gesture.

Thank you Jenni and Bank of Melbourne Berwick. Our hearts are full, and this has definitely lifted our spirits to get through what’s looking like a huge week ❤️

Given the current public health situation with COVID-19, we have put some extra precautions in place to try and protect our customers and team. We are dispensing more prescriptions than normal so you may be asked to return in an hour or two to collect your prescriptions. Our pharmacists will always dispense your prescriptions safely and responsibly, rushing under pressure can lead to mistakes, so it might take some time to reach your prescription in the queue.

Let’s all be mindful of each other, stay calm, and be cautious, but minimise fear and panic.

Our community has always been wonderful and we are proud to be a part of the Berwick community and helping people, from babies up to the older generation.
