What is a Medscheck medication review?

The MedsCheck service was created specifically for people who are regularly taking three or more medications at a time. A MedsCheck provides an opportunity for you to sit down one-on-one with your Pharmacist to help identify and resolve common medication-related issues so you can get the most benefit from your medication. This medication review can help you better understand your medication therapy and ensure that medications are being taken as prescribed.

Do you provide the flu shot?

Our pharmacists are permitted to inject the flu vaccine provided by the health unit in the fall when the flu shot becomes available.In order to be able to provide these injection services, the Pharmacists must take part in a certification process that includes; training, live workshops, first aid and CPR training, as well as education to provide specialized knowledge of vaccine storage requirements. Under provincial legislation, pharmacists may provide the flu shot vaccination and other injections to children 5 years old and over.

Do you provide blood pressure monitoring?

High blood pressure is one of the main risk factors for heart disease, stroke and kidney failure. Small changes in pressure can have a significant impact on life expectancy. A simple and easy way to test your blood pressure is to use our Blood Pressure machine. A trained pharmacist will take your blood pressure to ensure your blood pressure is taken appropriately.

Do you provide Dossettes/compliance packaging?

You know those over the counter medicines that come in a sheet where you pop the medication out through the tinfoil backing? That's a compliance package.
