The pharmacy at the Sud-Ouest hospital implements new health security measures | Bunbury Courier
Bunbury and South West pharmacies are urging customers to exercise caution during the ongoing health crisis.
In line with social distancing guidelines, the Southwest Hospital Pharmacy installed a new kiosk window last month.
The window allows each patient to have their prescriptions filled while standing outside.
The pharmacy now also makes deliveries to at-risk patients who cannot leave their homes.
Leah Henderson, managing partner of South West Hospital Pharmacy, said the changes helped prevent overcrowding and protect staff and patients.
âAs a team we are very busy right now,â she said.
âWe were able to help the majority of our patients obtain their medication.
âThere were supply issues, but we were able to resolve them with our customers.
“We will do everything in our power to help our patients and the community.”
The Bunbury Drive-in Chemist – located on Forrest Avenue – offers free deliveries to patients between Australind and Gelorup.
The pharmacy has also hired more casual workers to help increase the number of customers.
The business will be closed from 2:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. daily for daily cleaning duties and staff changes.
