You are entitled to know how to get the most benefit from your medicines. That’s why we offer personal and confidential counselling sessions designed to provide you with the knowledge and confidence to better manage your therapy.
Medicine Reconciliation Service:
As a new patient at Gordon’s Pharmacy, we will discuss all your prescription items including over-the-counter medicines you are currently taking. This ensures that we have an accurate list of your medications which can be checked against all new prescribed medicines and any discrepancies reconciled.
For existing customers, all prescriptions from your GP or any other provider, such as the hospital, are checked against your medication record to reduce medication errors. A written summary can be provided and we are happy to discuss your records in a private confidential meeting if required.
Our pharmacists and all staff are trained to give the ‘right advice’ to suit your healthcare needs. Backed with our health information resources and the information you provide, we’ll work with you to select the best treatment for your symptoms.
We offer Blister Packing Service which will keep all your medications in one easy to use pack. This allows you to see the day and time of your doses and will help you keep track of your medication. Talk to one of our experienced and knowledgeable staff to see if this service can benefit you or a family member.
Screening and support service provided to all patients with Diabetes. We stock blood glucose meters and our pharmacists and technicians can demonstrate and advise on their use.
