The staff at the Pharmacy are working hard to keep the business working efficiently and safely.
Access to the shop is limited to a maximum of three customers at any one time to allow everyone to practice safe-distancing. While it is no longer possible to wander in the shop and self-select, our staff are more than willing to assist in locating all the items needed. Please make the staff aware if you need a private consultation with the Pharmacist on duty.
The faxing of prescriptions directly from Anglesea Medical appears to work efficiently. The prescriptions will however not be dispensed until requested- either by presenting in person, or by phone. Home deliveries are available and keeping scripts on file at the Pharmacy and phoning to request supply facilitates this. We have perspex screens at the front till and at the ‘prescription-in’ table at the front of the shop-please ensure your interactions with staff utilise these screens to provide maximum protection to all of us.
We have been inundated with requests for influenza vaccine this year and at this stage are unable to promise a date of supply or to indicate whether we will receive sufficient stock to supply all orders.
Unfortunately some other prescription items are still out of stock but we hope this situation will improve significantly over the next two weeks.
We hope to have hand sanitiser soon!
A huge thank-you to Gary Robinson for liaising with Surfcoast Council to provide two parking spaces dedicated to pharmacy customers. If you do not wish to come into the pharmacy, please phone and we will collect your scripts from the car.
We all appreciate the support of our local and loyal customers and also welcome those seeking refuge in their holiday homes.
Congratulations to everyone in the town for your efforts to keep us all safe.
Jason, Deborah, Sue and the Pharmacy Team
To assist with safe distancing while people are waiting at the Pharmacy to have their scripts filled, we now have 2 temporary parking bays outside the Pharmacy.
This allows people to wait in the shelter of their car until their medications are ready.
