Description

We can help support the health of your family and provide advice and treatment for common illnesses for all ages.

We 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. We will help you understand what your medicines are prescribed for, how to take them, possible side effects and how to store them.

We have staff trained in natural health who can offer advice. We stock a range of first aid, gift and beauty products in our shop. All advice and treatment is conducted in a professional and confidential manner and do not generally require an appointment.

We have been serving the local community for 15 years helping people located in West Harbour, Whenuapai, Massey, Hobsonville, Hobsonville Point, Westgate, Royal Heights and the wider Waitakere region. Now that we have a website, we extend our healthcare services nationwide. If you require picking up online items, please give us a call PRIOR to coming in to confirm the items are in stock. 

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

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

Medication for long term conditions

This service is designed for people with long-term illnesses who may need support with their medicines. An assessment is used to identify the things that affect their ability to take medication as prescribed. Pharmacists work together with the patient to address each issue. The pharmacist is able to assist you with managing your medications and can coordinate your medications so that your prescription repeats happen all at the same time and therefore require only one trip to have your prescriptions refilled. They can also provide you with a reminder service (via text message, email or phone call) to let you know when your next supply of medications is ready for collection. If you are having difficulties managing your medicines (e.g. forgetting to take them), please ask your pharmacist whether this service is right for you. FREE PRESCRIPTIONS & BLISTER PACKS for LTC patients.
