Do you find it hard to remember if you've taken your medicines?
Are you worried about a member of your family who may be finding it hard to keep track of what to take and when?
Do you find it hard to open pill bottles or read their labels?
Do you have children who need to take medication to school?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then compliance packing may help. Your tablets and capsules are dispensed into a convenient, safe and reliable pack instead of bottles and boxes. The packs are labelled with the time and day to take each medicine - no more guesswork!
Do you know what all those medicines in your cabinet are really for?
Come in and sit with your Pharmacist for an informal chat about your medicines.
Find out what they do, why you're taking them, and how to get the most out of them.
This check, which usually takes around 10 minutes, includes all prescription and non-prescription (over the counter) medicines or dietary supplements including paracetamol, cold medicines, vitamins, or natural remedies.
As health customers you may see a number of different health practitioners - your pharmacist, Doctor, podiatrist, dentist and they don't always have a complete picture of all the medications you may be taking. Your pharmacist can keep track of all these for you, whether prescribed or not, and be able to advise you accordingly. They can provide you with an up-to-date list of all your medicines including any non-prescription medicines. With your consent they can work with your other health providers and can arrange for your prescriptions to synchronise so you know when new prescriptions are due.
Medicines are only funded by the government for a certain period of time, and people often forget they have repeats on their medication to pick up. Don't let those repeats expire any more with a Pharmacy Message Reminder Service - if you have a repeat prescription with us, we can send you a reminder that it's due to expire - talk to your pharmacist about setting this service up for you!
Medicines must be disposed of correctly - so they don't end up in our waterways or in the wrong hands. If you have unused or expired medicines, your pharmacy has systems in place to take care of them for you.
