It isn’t luxury, a nice thing;
community is essential to our well being. ”

How do pharmacies work here in Western Australia?

In Western Australia, medications are supplied at a pharmacy by a pharmacist.

Some medicines can be supplied without a prescription after consulting with a pharmacist. Some medicines are scheduled by the Health Department and is legally supplied after validating a prescription from the doctor.

A pharmacist must be present for consultation when the pharmacy is open (except rural areas).

What do pharmacists do apart from giving out medications?

A pharmacist is a health care professional who cooperates, consults with, and advises medical practitioners when the need arises to discuss the pharmacology of a medication before making informed decisions for the patient.

A pharmacist also collaborates with other health professionals in the best interest of patients to connect medication and primary care strategies back to the health care system.

The pharmacist is often the last health care professional to communicate with the patient, or a significant other, before the medication is taken. Therefore, the pharmacist is in an ideal position to discuss the drug with those concerned.
