In addition to our regular Pharmacy functions, Waiheke Pharmacy offers a wide range of specialised services to support your needs

Integrative trained Pharmacists

Our pharmacists have additional training in and experience with specific integrative and complementary therapies such as nutritional supplements, herbs and medicinal foods. Using this training and experience we are able to assist patients, physicians, and other health care providers both with conventional drug therapy and with the selection and use of integrative/complementary therapies to enhance care. In this advisory role as integrative pharmacists' our primary concerns are patient safety, efficacy of all therapies, appropriate use of evidence-based information, and the fostering of patient responsibility for individual health care choices.

Long-term conditions (LTC) service

This service is designed for people with long-term illnesses who may need support with their medicines. An assessment is used to identify the things that affect your ability to take medication as prescribed. The pharmacist is able to assist you with managing your medications and can coordinate your medications so that your prescription repeats happen all at the same time and therefore require only one trip to have your prescriptions refilled. They can also provide you with a reminder service (via text message, email or phone call) to let you know when your next supply of medications is ready for collection. If you are having difficulties managing your medicines (e.g. forgetting to take them), please ask your pharmacist whether this service is right for you

Blister Packs

We can provide you with individually made blister packs of your medicines. These can be supplied weekly, fortnightly, or monthly depending on your needs. This type of packaging can help you to take your medicine at the right time. It can also make it easier to see if you have missed a dose or are running out. Blistering is useful if you are travelling as it avoids having to take multiple containers. Liquids are not able to be blister packed.

Specialised wound care

Some wounds require extra attention and skill to manage. We have staff qualified to do this and can refer you to your doctor if necessary.

Nutrition, Lifestyle and Wellness Advice

We realise that not every ailment is remedied by medicines and supplements so our pharmacists are able to offer sound lifestyle and nutritional advice. We have conducted many educational workshops covering topics like Sleep, Healthy Aging, Exercise is Medicine, Food is Medicine and Breakfast Smoothies to name a few. Visit us at the Pharmacy for advice and click HERE to subscribe to our newsletter for information on upcoming workshops and other news and wellness tips.

Trimethoprim dispensing for Urinary track infections.

We have trained pharmacists who can prescribe trimethoprim for women aged between 16 and 65 who have uncomplicated urinary tract infections (if you are not pregnant and have not taken a course of antibiotics within the previous 6 months).

Emergency contraceptive pill (ECP) and Oral Contraceptive supply.

Our pharmacists are trained to assess whether the ECP is appropriate for you. This is done in a confidential manner. The ECP works best if taken as soon as possible after unprotected intercourse but may be taken up to 72 hours after. There is a charge associated with receiving the ECP. We can also supply some types of Oral Contraception after a consultation with you.
