We’re still open but ….

Berwick Pharmacy is still open the same hours as always but as  Omicron infections spread through the community in ever greater numbers, on some days we might have to make do with lower staff numbers than we’d like. 

If any of our team are Covid positive or need to isolate we have to hope that we have spare staff who can fill the gaps. This might not always happen, so perhaps you may have to wait longer at the cash register or your prescription may take longer to prepare. You may have to wait longer to speak to a pharmacist or a pharmacy assistant.

All our team are doing their best and many of them are feeling their own stresses with family impacts from Covid infections. We thank you for your kindness and understanding and we are all hoping we come through this tough situation soon.

If you take regular medications it might be a good idea to sign up to Medadvisor, which is an app on your phone where you can manage your prescriptions. You will receive reminders for your next prescription and you can order your prescriptions through the app. Your prescriptions will be ready for you when you call into the pharmacy. You can even pay for them online, avoiding waiting at the cash register. Ask one of our pharmacists about Medadvisor  or visit your app store.

Tips to beat the bite

Tips to beat the bite

Health & Wellness

Children are vulnerable to mosquito bites.
Mosquitoes can carry diseases that could make them sick, so it’s up to us to help kids beat the bite.
To protect children from mozzies:
🦟 Limit their outdoor activity when mosquito numbers are high.
Make sure they wear long, loose-fitting clothing outdoors.
🦟 Apply a thin, even layer of mosquito repellent to all exposed skin, avoiding hands, eyes and mouth. Choose a lower strength repellent for young children and babies (no more than 20% picaridin or DEET).
🦟 If your child has sensitive skin (or is bothered by the smell of DEET) use picaridin or apply repellent to their clothes instead.
🦟 Drape a mosquito net over the pram, stroller or infant carrier (make sure there are no gaps).
