New pharmacy for medical complex
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.”
