Our FREE Medscheck service is designed to ensure that you are taking your medications safely and effectively.
During your FREE 20-30 minute Medscheck consultation, one of our experienced pharmacists will sit down with you and review your current medications, discussing the purpose of your medicine, side effects, storage requirements and advice on how to get the best out of your medications. At the end of the Medscheck you will be provided with a printed list of your medications that can be forwarded to your GP at your request.
Medscheck has been designed to optimise your health and wellbeing. This free service is available to anyone who wants to learn more about their medications. Medscheck may be particularly helpful for people who are on more than 5 medications and those who have recently been discharged from hospital, as well as anyone who has experienced a recent diagnosis which may affect the way that medicine should be taken.
If you have diabetes you may benefit from a Diabetes Medscheck. This FREE service involves a one on one discussion with one of our experienced pharmacists, who will sit down with you for 20-30 minutes to discuss your diabetes management plan and medications. In addition to checking that you are using your medications effectively, our pharmacist will provide advice on how you can best manage your diabetes.
The Diabetes Medscheck service is available to anyone who has been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes in the past year and does not have access to a diabetes educator. The service is also available to anyone who has uncontrolled Type 2 Diabetes.
Home Medicine Review
A Home Medicine Review is designed to ensure that medicine is used safely and effectively within the home. During a Home Medicine Review, one of our experienced pharmacists will
visit your home at a time that suits you, and review the way in which you take and store your medicines.
A Home Medicine Review appointment takes around one hour. During this time the pharmacist will review your medications and identify ways in which you can simplify your medication management. At the end of the visit our pharmacist will create a report for your GP, including any recommendations of changes to your medication schedule. Your GP will then arrange a follow up appointment to discuss any potential changes.
Home Medicine Reviews are designed to enhance the quality use of medications while helping patients to better understand their medicines. This FREE service is covered by medicare for all eligible customers.
