Every year, up to 210,000 Australians are admitted to hospital due to medication problems. At least 50% of these admissions could be avoided by better medicine management. A MedsCheck or Diabetes MedsCheck will help you understand your medicines and stay out of hospital.
A MedsCheck and Diabetes MedsCheck is a service funded by the Australian Government and involves one-on-one time with your pharmacist , in the pharmacy to discuss all your medicines. There is no cost to the consumer to receive either a MedsCheck or Diabetes MedsCheck.
These Medschecks will help you increase your knowledge about your medicines, increase your confidence in using your medicines and reduce your risk of an avoidable trip to hospital.
Vicki Grant, at the Canowindra Pharmacy is now available for these essential MedsCheck by appointment only on Thursdays. To check your eligibility for the MedsCheck or Diabetes MedsCheck please phone Vicki Grant on 6344 1204 or visit the website www.5cpa.com.au.
