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.

If you’re still not sure, that’s what a pharmacist is for.

World Pharmacists Day

World Pharmacists Day

Our Pharmacy Services

25-09-2019

It’s World Pharmacists Day, so our pharmacists are celebrating by being at work!

Every single day, our pharmacists do their best to help our patients with their health.
💊Sometimes that means explaining about a new medicine.
💊Sometimes that means dressing a wound.
💊Sometimes that means changing a Medico-Pak for a patient who has just been discharged from hospital with changes to their medicines.
💊Sometimes that means encouraging people to see a doctor.
💊Sometimes that means calling 000 for someone.

Often it means drinking a cold cup of coffee, or shovelling down a super quick lunch, or staying back late. It means working in the evening, and on weekends, and on public holidays.

We are so lucky to have such dedicated, knowledgeable, helpful, passionate, kind and caring pharmacists on our team.

❤️ THANK YOU ❤️
