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 >

Are you spring cleaning or doing a KonMari clean? Do you have any expired or unwanted medicines at home? Our pharmacists and the rest of our team want you to bring them in!

You can return any unwanted or expired medicines to us. We will organise safe disposal, at no charge, as part of the RUM Project (Return of Unwanted Medicines), funded by the Commonwealth Government.

In the 2017-18 financial year, pharmacists around Australia collected over 800,000 kg of unwanted medicines.

Some facts about expired and unwanted medicines:
💊 It can be dangerous to keep expired or unwanted medicines in the house.
💊 Children, pets or even adults might accidentally take medicines not intended for them.
💊 Chemical changes can occur to some out-of-date medicines, making them toxic.
💊 Putting medicines in the rubbish bin, pouring them down the sink, or flushing them down the toilet can contaminate the environment and affect our waterways.

So give your medicine cabinet a clean out, and bring any unwanted medicines to us for safe disposal. You can learn more here

Is your blood pressure high?

Is your blood pressure high?

Our pharmacy services

17-10-2018

If your blood pressure is high, it is putting extra strain on your arteries and on your heart.

As a result, over time this strain can cause the arteries to become thicker and less flexible, or to become weaker.

Keeping a close eye on your blood pressure is a good way to catch changes early and take appropriate action.

A good way to monitor your blood pressure is through in-pharmacy blood-pressure monitoring and recording.

These services support patients to self-monitor blood pressure as a cardiovascular disease screening/monitoring service, often with referral to medical support when necessary.

If your arteries become thicker and less flexible, they will become narrower, making them more likely to become clogged up. Read More >
