Effective MedsCheck program

Benefit from an effective MedsCheck program.

MedsCheck

MedsCheck can be conducted at any time by one of our pharmacists.

The MedsCheck program aims to:

  • Help patients learn more about their medicines including how medicines affect medical conditions.
  • Identify problems patients may be experiencing with their medicines.
  • Improve the effective use of medicines by patients.
  • Educate patients about how to best use and store their medicines.

Diabetes MedsCheck

As part of the program registered pharmacists can also provide a Diabetes MedsCheck for patients with Type 2 Diabetes.

This review focuses on their diabetes medicines, monitoring devices and self management.

Home Medicines Review

Medication

Medication advice in the comfort of your home.

This is a service where an accredited Pharmacist, such as Amanda, comes to your home to talk to you about your medicines and any problems or uncertainties you may have.

The Pharmacist will then discuss the results with your doctor with the aim of improving your health. This service is fully funded by the Federal Government for qualifying patients. Any Australian citizen over 65 years or has a chronic disease such as a diabetes, is eligible for a Home Medicines Review.

If you take 5 or more medications on a regular basis, have been recently discharged from hospital or are having difficulties with side effects or managing your medications then talk to your doctor, or one of our Pharmacists about a referral for a home medicines review.
