Free Medication Advice "MedsCheck"

Are your medications working for you? Every year, up to 210,000 Australians are admitted to hospital due to medication problems. At least 50% of these admissions could have been avoided by better medicine management. At Albany Creek Day Night Chemist, we have clinically trained pharmacists and an intern pharmacist present in store to offer advice and answer any pharmacy related questions you have. This is a free service, and usually takes 60 minutes. The session requires a prior appointment, of which any staff member will be more than happy to organise for you. Please feel free to either book instore or phone us on 3264 4433 to work out what time suits you best.

Medication Packing/Dose Administration Aids

Are you on a number of medications with complex regimens? Do you sometimes miss a dose? Are you worried about taking the right medication at the right time? If you have any of these concerns, a dose administration aid is the answer. For a small weekly fee, we can organise your medications into a weekly blister pack system as well as manage your prescriptions to save you running out of repeats! This will give you peace of mind that you are taking the correct dosage at the correct time of the day. For further information, ask one of our pharmacists or one of our friendly packing staff.

Patient Medication Profiles

Let us prepare a professional medication profile for you, which lists every medication that you take and when you take it, as well as providing a colour picture of your dosage form for easy identification. This is a very handy service for those with chronic conditions that may require hospitalisation or ambulance transport, or even for those patients travelling overseas, allowing for easy passage through customs in strict destinations. This service is free, and can be discussed in detail with one of our dispensary staff.

Free Blood Pressure Monitoring

High blood pressure (or hypertension) is an incredibly common community disorder. Blood pressure increases with age and is affected by many external factors, such as diet, exercise and medication. Hypertension can be mild to severe, and can be asymptomatic in many patients. It is a condition affected by family history as well. Why not get your blood pressure checked instore today? We can record and graph the results for you to show your local GP if readings are abnormal. It is a free and quick service. You never know, early detection may save your life!

Diabetes Services/NDSS

We are a subagent for NDSS, so we can supply enrolled diabetic patients with subsidised materials such as needles and testing strips. We also have a dedicated area to diabetic needs. If you are not enrolled in this program, we can start the process for you. Our pharmacists are clinically trained in diabetes and up to date with the latest Australian diabetic guidelines and treatment options.

Respiratory Medicine Specialists

Asthma is another common community disorder that can affect as many as 1 in 10 children. If left untreated, or if treatment isn’t optimised, the condition can quickly deteriorate. At Albany Creek Day And Night Chemist, we are deeply concerned with the prevalence of this condition in our community, and we want to do our best to arm all patients with current advice. We have a wide range of asthma accessories and we can show your the best medication technique. We can also start your Asthma Action Plan. The pharmacists have clinical expertise in respiratory medicine, so feel free to check on any breakthroughs regarding asthma, COPD or even medication inhalation technique.

Expert Natural Advice and Selection

Do you prefer the natural alternative? We have a large area dedicated to natural products from natural brands you can trust, including Blackmores, Nature’s Own, Ethical Nutrients and Swisse. Our natural medicine specialist (Delwyn) works every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and a registered naturopath is only a phonecall away if we cannot answer your questions. Our staff can provide honest, natural alternatives to traditional Western medications for simple ailments, and give honest, best-evidence advice to aid your selection. Every month we highlight natural remedies for everyday health concerns, so come in and see what this month has in store!

No Wait Prescription Service

You’ve had a hard day at work, and relaxing at home feels like a dream come true. You suddenly remember your regular prescription medications have run out and dropping past the pharmacy is the last thing you feel like doing! Why not leave your repeats with us, phone up ahead, and then have them waiting for you when you walk in. This is a free service aimed at reducing waiting times and enhancing the pharmacy experience for you. We can safely secure your prescriptions and confidentiality is always assured. We will always let you know how many repeats are left, and how close you are to the safety net limit (if you are concerned).

Home Medication Reviews (HMRs)

A HMR is a coordinated service between yourself, your GP and an accredited pharmacist that aims to ensure you are safely taking your medication at home. This process must be initiated by your GP, and once done, a friendly accredited pharmacist will come to see you at your home at your convenience. For further information, feel free to contact us, or talk to your GP.

Home Health Aids

Our store offers an excellent range of hire equipment aimed at mobility and home help, depending on your needs. Crutches (in different styles and different heights), wheelchairs, walkers, shower chairs, and over-toilet chairs are some of the products we have available. Our expert front shop staff can track down items for you if we don’t have them in stock. Most hire items are available for purchase (new or ex-hire).

Family Health Specialists

All staff members at Albany Creek Day Night Chemist are trained in a wide variety of common conditions or complaints affecting the family. Expert advice and solutions for pain relief, headlice, worms, cough/cold, skin conditions, hayfever, and mother/child concerns (and more!) are just a visit away! We pride ourselves on giving advice based on latest evidence and guidelines. Being a late night pharmacy, we can coordinate appointments with late night doctor surgeries if the problem requires specialist attention.   

We are a late night, 7 day pharmacy!

Modern life is so hectic. Whether you are a full-time mum, working 9-5 Monday to Friday, or a shift worker, a visit to the pharmacy  doesn’t always fit in with your schedule. Our pharmacy is open for longer than many other local pharmacies, 7 days a week, so you can come in to see us at a time that suits you without rushing!
