Pharmacy Services

Free Medication Advice

At Red Hill Day and Night Pharmacy, we have well 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 does not require a prior appointment.

Medication Packing

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 a simple answer. For a small weekly fee, we can organize your medications into a weekly blister pack system. This will give you the peace of mind that you are taking the correct dosage at the correct time of the day, and take out the stress of managing medications and scripts. For further information, ask one of our pharmacists.   A FREE TRIAL OFFER for this service is available for patients new to this service, please enquire with one of our friendly staff for further information. 

Patient Medication Profiles

This is a new service at Red Hill Day and Night Pharmacy: we can prepare a professional medication profile for you, which lists every medication that you take and when you take it. Each oral medication is accompanied by a picture of the tablet 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. Our blood pressure increases with age and is affected by many external factors, such as diet, exercise and medication. Hypertension can range from being mild to severe, and may present with no symptoms in many patients. It is a condition affected by family history as well. Why not pop into our store for a free blood pressure check. We can record the results for you to show your local GP if readings are continuously high. 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 our enrolled diabetic patients with subsidised materials such as needles and testing strips. We also have a dedicated area to diabetic needs, and 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.

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 and getting them filled 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 to the safety net limit you are (if you are concerned).

We will also keep a comprehensive record of all your medications dispensed by our pharmacy, allowing for complete reporting for PBS Safety Net totals and end of financial year tax records to be generated without any hassles.

Home Medication Reviews (HMRs)

A Home Medication Review (HMR) is a way for your pharmacist and GP to help you manage your medicines at home.  The reviews are great for people on a number of different medicines, suffering from side effects from their medicines or those taking complimentary medicines, or simply want some one on one time with a pharmacist to discuss concerns with their medications.  A HMR needs to be referred by your GP, so if interested ask at your next appointment, or talk to our in house HMR qualified pharmacist for more information.  This is a FREE service, as it is funded by Medicare for eligible patients.
