Pharmacy Service


9:00 AM to 2:00 PM.


Pharmacists can help to support the health of your family; they can provide advice and treatment for common minor illnesses for all ages.

Pharmacists ensure that prescriptions are dispensed correctly and that the medicine and dose is appropriate for you, so that you receive the maximum benefits from your medicines. Your pharmacist will help you understand what your medicines are prescribed for, how to take them, possible side effects and how to store them.

All advice and treatment is conducted in a professional and confidential manner and most services are provided free of charge and do not generally require an appointment.

For safe disposal, please return any expired or unwanted medicines, or needles/lancets and syringes to your pharmacy. There is no charge for this service.

Please don't hesitate to contact us directly if you have any questions.

We will only charge you the correct co-payment levels. Please ask us if you are unsure about the cost of your medicines. As the medicine subsidy may change from month to month, depending on the subsidy price negotiated by PHARMAC, your medicine prices can vary. If you have any queries regarding these charges or the funding of prescription medicines, please phone the PHARMAC information line 0800 66 00 50 (9am – 4pm weekdays).


A premium is charged if the prescribed medicine is NOT FULLY subsidised. If you wish, we will always inform you if there is a fully subsidised, alternative medicine. This will also be discussed with your prescriber.
