New pharmacy for med­i­cal com­plex

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Front Page -

The Yar­ra­wonga Med­i­cal Com­plex has wel­comed an­other friendly busi­ness with a new pharmacy open­ing re­cently to ac­com­mo­date the needs of pa­tients us­ing the fa­cil­ity.

The new pharmacy is owned and staffed by the same lo­cal team as the Terry White Chem­mart store lo­cated in Bel­more Street and has been added for the con­ve­nience of be­ing able to col­lect prescriptions, med­i­ca­tion and health care ad­vice from an­other lo­ca­tion eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble on the eastern edge of town.

The team of phar­ma­cists to be work­ing at the new store in­clude Rus­sell and Michelle In­gram who have owned and run the Terry White Chem­mart store for over 20 years, in­clud­ing un­der the Terry White and Am­cal ban­ners, Cameron Wood and Rae Saun­ders who have both been a part of the dis­pens­ing team for sev­eral years now and both live in Yar­ra­wonga with many lo­cal in­ter­ests along with new phar­ma­cist Jane Elzinga who will be work­ing at the store three days a week.

At this stage all the phar­ma­cists will be ro­tat­ing through both stores to max­imise their in­di­vid­ual spe­cial­ties such as phar­ma­cist vac­ci­na­tion pro­grams and home med­i­ca­tion re­view ser­vices.

Many of the dis­pen­sary tech­ni­cians in­clud­ing fa­mil­iar faces Bev Whin­ray, Te­gan Pow­ell, Lucy Hol­combe, Am­ber Hop­good and Rhonda Ma­gro will also be ro­tat­ing through the new store to en­sure a smooth dis­pen­sary process.

Other ex­pe­ri­enced staff such as Tracey Schofield, Chris­tine Blake, Chris­tine Shand, Louise Olphert, Lisa Beat­tie and Kath Ryan will also spend time at the new venue.

Terry White Chem­mart Yar­ra­wonga coowner Michelle In­gram said the staff were very happy with the new store and were pleased to be able to ac­com­mo­date pa­tients right across the town.

“We are very proud of our new store,” Michelle said.

“Whilst com­pact, it is bright and invit­ing and has a wide range of health-re­lated prod­ucts in­clud­ing pain re­lief, cough cold and al­lergy medicines, vi­ta­mins, di­ges­tion, eye, ear and oral items, first aid, ther­a­peu­tic skin ranges, baby lines and anti-can­cer coun­cil sun­glasses.

“Space lim­i­ta­tions do re­quire some ser­vices such as Webster-paks, flu shots, CPAP and sleep stud­ies and fra­grance, gifts and beauty prod­ucts but all ser­vices can be of­fered at the new store.

“We look for­ward to you com­ing in and say­ing hello.”
