MAKE YOUR LIFE EASIER WITH WEBSTER-PACK!
What is Webster-pack service?
We all have problems remembering to take medication sometimes. Especially when we are on multiple medications, it can be difficult to remember to always take all medications as prescribed by the doctor. A Webster pack allows you to have your own pack where your all medications are set out in order of when you take them.
To take the medicines, you simply push the contents through the foil backing.
Why is it good?
❖ Simple, convenient and effective
❖ Suitable for all age groups
❖ Easy to check that medication is taken every day
❖Great for travelling
❖Easier for carers and family
❖The pharmacist ensures you are not duplicating the medication, taking the correct dose at the correct time.
❖ We make sure that you are taking only what you are supposed to be taking
❖ We will chase your scripts for you, allowing you time to discuss your health with the Doctor rather than paperwork
❖Peace of mind for you and your loved ones.

How much does this cost?
Due to the recent De-funding of the community pharmacies by the federal government, we have no choice but to start charging a small fee to cover some cost of packing material. The new charge of $5 per week covers only a portion of the service as we try to keep the cost low for our customers.
We will continue to honor our existing Webster pack patients at no charge to continue supporting them with managing their medications.
You are still required to pay for your medications as if you were self-medicating, but there is no extra charge for packing. Whenever we dispense new medications to pack into your pack*,
we will charge it into your account and will ask you to pay your account monthly.
*brand-substitution may be requested
What do you need to do?
Easy! Bring your medication chart and all your medications to our pharmacy!
If you don’t have a medication chart, don’t worry. We will ask your doctor for the medication chart.
If you have concerns regarding additional charges for the services you used to get for free, please contact your MP or your State senators.
