Our Pharmacy Services

We can help with all aspects of blood glucose monitoring. We can carry out in-pharmacy checks or set you up with your own glucometer for home management.

Blood Glucose Monitoring

We consider this to be our most important service to you and we are dedicated to ensuring you get the best result from it.

We do more than “just dispense”.


We will work in partnership with you and your prescriber to ensure that you get the right medicine, at the right dose and importantly with the information you need to get the best result from your medicines and your doctor’s visit -  and so that you can confidently use your medicines.

Dispensing

CMI tells you all the basic information you need to know about your medicines.


Consumer Medicines Information is especially important with new medicines but if you are worried about any existing medicine you may already be taking, please ask our pharmacists for a CMI at any time.

Consumer Medicines Information (CMI)

The following specialist dispensing services are available from our pharmacists when clinically needed.

You may benefit from or in fact need a more in-depth discussion about your medicines.

Are you taking multiple medicines?

Or

  • Have you recently had a new diagnosis?

Or

  • Are you taking high risk medicines or are worried about your medicines ?


A Medscheck Consultation may be funded under the Seventh Community Pharmacy Agreement and can be centred around any health related condition or medicines: Diabetes, Asthma, Blood Pressure, Cardiac, Hormonal Preparations, Oral Contraceptives and Cholesterol to name only a few.


Our pharmacist can discuss this with you when medicines are dispensed or just ask.


Medscheck Services are not available to in-patients of public or private hospitals, day hospital facilities, transition care facilities or to residents of an Aged Care Facility.

MedsChecks

An in-depth discussion about your medicines with our pharmacist where a Medscheck is not a Government funded option.

MedsConsult

  • Are you or your loved ones 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.  We can organise your medications into a weekly blister 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 the stress out of managing medication and scripts.  Again our pharmacist will advise during dispensing or feel free to ask.

Dose Administration Aids

  • Have you recently had a fall?
  • Suffered declining cognition?
  • Or are you now unable to manage your own medicines due to changes in dexterity, confusion or impaired vision?


We can send an accredited pharmacist to your home to help with problem areas.  A doctor’s referral is needed for funding under the Seventh Community Pharmacy Agreement and we could discuss this with your G.P. on your behalf if you would like.


If funding is not available under this program, other options may be available.


HMR Services are not available to in-patients of public or private hospitals, day hospital facilities, transition care facilities or to residents of an Aged Care Facility.

Home Medicines Reviews (HMR)

Some patients need to have their medicines supplied to them in instalments.  Demartes Amcal Pharmacy can arrange this with your doctor to ensure you receive your medicines in either daily or weekly instalments.  We will also do this at the direction of your doctor.

Staged Supply

We offer a simple compounding service to prepare specialised tailored creams and ointments that are not available in 'pre-made' or 'proprietary forms'. We will let you know as soon as it's ready for you to collect at your convenience.

Compounding

Running out of time? Why don't you try our mobile ordering prescription service? Leave your prescription with us and we will file it accurately and safely. When you are due to have your prescription filled, we will send you a phone notification. You will always know how many repeats you have left with the help of our FREE Scripts Management App - myPharmacyLink (available on the Apple Apps or Google Play Store). We will also keep a comprehensive record of all of your medication 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.

Scripts on File Reordering System

We can dispose of any of your old medicines for you.  Storage of expired and unwanted medicines in the home can lead to environmental damage.  There is a free and convenient way to dispose of your unwanted medicines responsibly and it's called Return Unwanted Medicines (or The RUM Project). Just ask us.
