Ask about your medicines21-10-2019
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 day25-09-2019
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 ❤️
