Description

Unichem Northcote pharmacists can help to support the health of your family; we can provide care and advice along with treatments for common minor illnesses for all ages.

Our pharmacists ensure that prescriptions are dispensed correctly and that the medicine and dose is appropriate for you, so that you receive the maximum benefits from your medicines. Your pharmacist will help you understand what your medicines are prescribed for, how to take them, possible side effects and how to store them.

All advice and treatment is conducted in a professional, confidential and efficient manner. Most services are provided free of charge and do not generally require an appointment.

We specialise in knowledge of natural medicines and supplements to prevent or treat medical conditions. We have a vast range of dietary and natural products at extremely competitive prices.

We have Chinese and Korean speaking staff on hand to help with prescription translation and over-the-counter advice. The pharmacy is owned by Anthony Yee - a New Zealand born 3rd generation Chinese with extensive experience in the NZ Pharmacy market.

Please don't hesitate to contact us directly if you have any questions.
