PHAR­MA­CISTS are not just re­tail­ers at Gate­ways Am­cal Max Phar­macy.

Staff have un­der­gone ex­ten­sive train­ing so as to of­fer a wider range of pro­fes­sional ser­vices such as the phar­macy’s new sleep ap­noea and flu im­mu­ni­sa­tion clin­ics.

From late March, the store’s phar­ma­cists will be able to of­fer and ad­min­is­ter the in­fluenza vac­cine to per­sons over 18 who do not al­ready qual­ify for the an­nual free vac­cine un­der the Na­tional Im­mu­ni­sa­tion Pro­gram.

No doc­tor's pre­scrip­tion is re­quired, mak­ing it eas­ier and more con­ve­nient to pro­tect ev­ery­one against the flu.

For those hav­ing trou­ble sleep­ing, the sleep ap­noea clinic re­quires no re­fer­ral and can pro­vide you with the Star­dust de­vice, a home sleep test.

At only $99, the de­vice records how many events of sleep ap­noea (cease breath­ing for more than 10 secs whilst sleep­ing) you have and con­firm whether or not you snore.

The re­sults are sent to a physi­cian who will then di­ag­nose and make rec­om­men­da­tions based on the in­for­ma­tion pro­vided.
