Our pharmacies are committed to providing reliable and affordable healthcare services tailored to your family’s needs
Compliance Packaging AidsA free service provided to help our patients remember if and when they have taken their medications at specific times and days. We offer various forms to try to tailor to our patient’s needs and capabilities. Our pharmacists ensure all your medications including any OTC’s are correctly packaged to ensure patient adherence.
Influenza vaccinationsA trained pharmacist can administer the annual flu vaccine to anyone five years of age and older at participating pharmacies in the Universal Influenza Immunization Program.
Adapting a prescriptionIf it is clinically appropriate, your pharmacist may choose to change the dose, dosage form, frequency, or route of administration of your prescription to better meet your healthcare needs. Any changes made would be done with your consent, documented, and shared with your doctor.
MedsCheckIf you are taking three or more chronic medications, have diabetes, are a resident at a long-term care home, or are physically unable to get in for a visit to your pharmacy, your pharmacist may suggest a MedsCheck appointment – free of charge to those with a valid OHIP card – to review your prescription and non-prescription medications in detail to ensure our records are always up to date.
Compounding prescriptionsIf your medications are not commercially available in the dose or form they were prescribed, your pharmacist may be able to mix these medications and tailor them to a patient’s individual needs
Clinic daysTo help you learn about specific health conditions such as heart disease or diabetes, your pharmacy may hold specialized clinic days that focus on education or risk assessment.
Medication deliveryUnable to pick up your prescription? Some pharmacies offer free medication delivery to patients who live within the pharmacy’s delivery zone. Check with your pharmacy for more details.
Counselling servicesYour pharmacist can provide a range of advice and education about prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, natural health products, medical devices, and more. Ask your pharmacist!
Renewing a prescriptionIf you’re taking medication for a chronic condition, and you cannot get in to see your physician for a refill, you can ask your pharmacist to renew your prescription. (Note: Prescription renewal does not apply to narcotics or select drug classifications. This service does not replace the need to see your physician for regular check-ups and prescription renewals. The maximum length of time that your pharmacist may renew your prescription is for six months or the length of the original prescription, whichever is less.)
Smoking cessation support
In addition to recommending over-the-counter medications to help you quit smoking, your pharmacist can prescribe certain medications for smoking cessation. Some patients can also participate in the pharmacy smoking cessation program, which offers smoking cessation counselling for eligible Ontarians. Talk to your pharmacist to see if you qualify.
