    This is a depot - we have no pharmacist on site.  You can, however, have direct access to the pharmacist of Highland Pharmacy Roxburgh, obtain information, most pharmacy services and products.

    We are able to stock a selected range of pharmacy only medicines and usual pharmacy products.  We are able to obtain a wider range for individual customers on request via Highland Pharmacy Roxburgh.  We are also the local postal agency.

    Please contact Highland Pharmacy Central for your prescription requirements.

    Blister packs

    This pharmacy can provide you with individually made blister packs of your medicines. These can be supplied weekly, fortnightly, or monthly depending on your needs. This type of packaging can help you to take your medicine at the right time. It can also make it easier to see if you have missed a dose or are running out. Blistering is useful if you are travelling as it avoids having to take multiple containers. Liquids are not able to be blister packed.

    Emergency contraceptive pill (ECP)

    Your pharmacists are trained to assess whether the ECP is appropriate for you. This is done in a confidential manner. The ECP works best if taken as soon as possible after unprotected intercourse but may be taken up to 72 hours after. There is usually a charge associated with receiving the ECP.

    WINZ and other reports

    If you require reports on your medicines or the cost of your medicines please ask a member of the pharmacy team.
