So in a nutshell, what are electronic prescriptions?
E-prescriptions allow doctors to order a medicine via a non-paper prescription. Paper prescriptions can continue to be written and dispensed.
E-prescriptions can help reduce infection with paper prescriptions, and reduce transcription errors. They also prevent the problem of a lost prescription.
The doctor sends it as an SMS or email straight to your mobile phone or computer.
You can present the “token” on your phone to the pharmacy. It will be scanned, and dispensed straight from there.
For repeats, you will receive a new token, which is scanned the next time you need the medicine.
For more information, speak to our pharmacists, or information is available via the Australian Digital Health Agency website.

Say hello to Kylie
We’d like to introduce you to Kylie, one of our team members.
Kylie completed her dispensary technician course in the past year, and has made herself “indispensable” (see what I did there? ) by being able to work in many areas of our pharmacy.
We love Kylie’s willingness to work hard and take on any role she is given. We’re so glad to have you with us, Kylie

42 days of lockdown without washing hair?
Probably not, but you can definitely stretch those days between washes with MooGoo Skin Care Natural Dry Shampoo.

It’s World Breastfeeding Week05-08-2020
It’s World Breastfeeding Week, and this year’s theme is ‘support breastfeeding for a healthier planet’. The WHO and UNICEF are calling on governments to protect and promote women’s access to skilled breastfeeding counselling, a critical component of breastfeeding support.
Here in Victoria breastfeeding mothers can seek support from their maternal and child health nurse, GP or midwife, maternity hospital breastfeeding ‘day stay’ units, lactation consultants, early parenting centres and the Australian Breastfeeding Association.
Help is available by phone 24/7 through:
• Breastfeeding Helpline (1800 686 268)
• Maternal and Child Health Line (13 22 29).
