Did you know most medicines come with a Consumer Medicine Information (CMI) leaflet? It gives you important information about your medication and will help you understand how to safely take it and possible side effects or interactions.

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 ❤️

What is Consumer Medicines Information?

What is Consumer Medicines Information?

Consumer medicines information
—reliable information

With the rise of the internet, people can find a vast range
of information at home, but there is a need for caution
when dealing with issues relating to health. The best way to
guarantee you are getting reliable information about your
medicines is to ask your pharmacist for a CMI.

One website that can be relied upon for authentic and
trustworthy information on medicines is www.nps.org.au
At this website, you can find CMIs for most of the prescription
medicines available in Australia.

While CMIs are a valuable resource, reading one does not
take the place of counselling by a health professional. It is still
important to talk to your doctor or pharmacist about your
health and medicines. Read More >
