David's Pharmacy

Pharmacy Service

Today

Description

David’s Pharmacy was originally a Mower Shop but a great idea was hatched to turn it into a pharmacy due to its great parking right outside and the ability to add a Drive-Thru window to the side of the building. Up until quite recently there were always two pharmacies in Kamo and with the burgeoning population in the area it seemed like a need we could meet. The pharmacy incorporates two private consultation rooms for pharmacist consultations or, if necessary, for customers to change and/or breastfeed their baby! We have tried to design the pharmacy to be as open and welcoming as possible with adequate seating and an area for children to play whilst being supervised by their parents. Our quick and efficient service will mean that this waiting time is as short as possible but we believe while you are in the pharmacy it should be as comfortable as possible. Our aim is to provide a friendly, professional local service, not to be become the next big pharmacy chain of Whangārei!

Service is our motto - We make it easy for you.

Medication for long term conditions

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 their ability to take medication as prescribed. Pharmacists work together with the patient to address each issue.

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.
