Our pharmacy is an approved training site for university students studying pharmacy and most years we employ a pre-registration pharmacist.

Berwick Pharmacy is a member of the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia and the Pharmacy Guild of Australia. The pharmacy is fully accredited under the national Quality Care Pharmacy Program and we are a member of the Pharmasave group. For your convenience we are an official myki *agent.

Keeping healthy is the cornerstone of a happy and productive life and at Berwick Pharmacy we can help you achieve your health goals. Sometimes a good diet, the right amount of exercise and a positive outlook are still not enough to ensure your optimum health and well-being.

We might become unwell with an infection, or sustain an injury or we may develop a chronic illness and along with the advice of your doctor, your pharmacist can assist you to get the most out of your medicines so that you can achieve your best health outcomes.

We think it’s a sensible idea to develop an ongoing relationship with your preferred pharmacy, particularly if you have a chronic medical condition.

From time to time your pharmacist may talk to your doctor about your medicines – perhaps you have side effects or an alternative medicine might be considered. Your pharmacist can help you understand your medicines better – we can all access information online but this information needs to be put in context for you as an individual patient. We have a private consulting room to assist with private conversations.

guild-privacy-2Our team can also help you with advice and products about many common health worries concerns and often common medical problems can be a sign that further investigation is required and our pharmacists may recommend that you visit your doctor.

We have a wide range of wound care dressings and we can assist with rehabilitation and mobility equipment.

We offer many other professional services to help you manage your health. In partnership with your doctor and if you are taking several medications, a Home Medicines Review can provide an independent overview of the way in which you manage your medicines.

We can provide blister packs (medicopacks) with your own medicines securely sealed for different times of the day. Using a medicopack can assist in taking your medicines as your doctor intended – not too many or too few. We store your repeat forms in the pharmacy, avoiding the problem of missing prescriptions and we can let you know when your repeats are running low.

Berwick Pharmacy recently launched an exciting online beauty store Kiana Beauty, helping customers around Australia to purchase their favourite beauty products. Many customers find that shopping online at Kiana Beauty is very reassuring as Berwick Pharmacy has been around since 1948 and of course all our products are 100% authentic.

We look forward to see you in our pharmacy soon.

PBS co-payment, Pensioner Concession Card changes

From 1 January 2018, the PBS co-payment charge will rise in line with rises in the Consumer Price Index (CPI)

The new co-payments are $39.50 (was $38.80) for general patients and $6.40 (was $6.30) for concessional patients.

Rises reflect a 1.3% CPI indexation (rounded up to the nearest 10 cents) which is lower that has been seen in recent years.
