Pharmacist Vaccination Service

Are you on a number of medications with complex regimens? Do you sometimes miss a dose? Are you worried about taking the right medication at the right time? If you have any of these concerns, a dose administration aid is a simple answer. For a small weekly fee, we can organize your medications into a weekly blister pack system. This will give you the peace of mind that you are taking the correct dosage at the correct time of the day, and take out the stress of managing medications and scripts. For further information, ask one of our pharmacists.

Medication Management Service

Running out of time? Why don’t you try our no wait prescription service? Leave your prescription with us and we will file it accurately and safely. And when you are due to have your prescription filled, simply give us a call and we will dispense your medications and have them ready for you to collect - no waiting.  We will also keep a comprehensive record of all your medications dispensed by our pharmacy, allowing for complete reporting for PBS Safety Net totals and end of financial year tax records to be generated without any hassles.

Scripts on File and Reorder Service

Some patients may need to have their medicines provided to them in instalments.  This is known as Staged Supply and has been designed to support the provision of PBS medicines in instalments when requested by the prescriber.  In some cases a doctor may decide it in the patient's best interests for them to be given to them in instalments.  These instalments may be daily, weekly, or as otherwise prescribed by the doctor and our pharmacists are here to help you manage these instalments.  Ask us today for more information.    

Staged Supply of Medicines

Storage of expired and unwanted medicines in the home can be dangerous and unsafe disposal of unwanted medicines can lead to environmental damage. There is a free and convenient way to dispose of your unwanted medicines responsibly via our pharmacy, and it’s called Return Unwanted Medicines (or The RUM Project).
