As a member owned organisation, the Warwick Friendly Society’s only purpose is to serve our members and community.  During the tough times we are here for you.  Over the last 112 years we have helped our members through two World Wars, the Spanish Flu Outbreak, the Great Depression, droughts, floods and now – Covid-19.

We have been working hard over the past few weeks to prepare our pharmacies to help our staff, members and community get through this together.

To continue to help as many people as possible over the coming months we have to make some changes to the way we operate.

As of Thursday 26 March:

  • We will be limiting patient access to our stores.
  • We will only be taking cashless payments. Where this is not possible, we are able to support patients with other methods if required.

•             We will continue to comply with the Department of Health’s limits to the supply of some pharmacy items.  We are limiting dispensing of certain prescription products to 1 months’ supply at the prescribed dose, and sales of certain over-the-counter medicines to a maximum of one unit per purchase.  We may also limit dispensing and sales of all other medicines to one months’ supply or one unit if required.

A Reminder – Stay Home if you are not well

Please do not come into our pharmacies if you are unwell.  Send someone to collect your script or call us to arrange script pick up and home delivery.

Our colleagues at the Condamine Medical Centre (CMC) are providing the following advice; if you have developed a fever, a cough, sore throat or shortness of breath, stay at home and contact a doctor or call 13HEALTH (13 43 25 84).

 

We will continue to update you as the situation progresses.  We recommend you follow our Facebook page to stay up to date.
