If you are in doubt about whether you should go out, travel, go to the shops, take public transport, attend an event, go shopping for something you don’t need, or let your children go on a play date – the simple answer is don’t.
Your actions now will reduce the chances of transmission, which protects the health system and saves lives.
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 can then 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 one of your New Year’s resolutions is to get more organised, maybe it’s time you thought about having your medicines packed in a Medico-Pak.
Medico-Paks make taking medicines easier. We’ll store your prescriptions safely at the pharmacy, so you won’t need to worry about running out of medicines.
Using the latest technology, our pharmacists and dispensary technicians will prepare an individualised weekly pack for you, so you can easily take the correct medicines at the correct times.
Medico-Paks are clearly labelled with the names, strengths and doses of your medicines, which means you can bring them to medical appointments and doctors can easily see which medicines you take. Read More >
