Prescription Filling Services in Surrey
Pharmasave is dedicated to partnering with our customers to help you live your healthiest life. We are capable of assisting you and your family with the following services:
A medication review is an individualized, in-person meeting between the patient and their pharmacist. It is designed to confidentially help patients understand the purpose and the safe, appropriate use of their medications. It also gives the pharmacist the opportunity to engage the patient so that they can better identify and manage any concerns regarding prescriptions medications, over-the-counter-medications and natural health products that the patient is taking. The overall goals of a medication review are to:
- Review how medications are best taken
- Discuss what each medication is for
- Identify and address problems related to specific medications
- Check to see if the patient still needs to be on all of their medications
- Find out whether the medications are helping the patient
Medication reviews are free of charge and represent a win-win proposition for both the patient and their healthcare providers. If you are interested in scheduling a medication review with one of our pharmacists, please contact our pharmacy and speak with one of our pharmacy team members who will help you right away.
Flu Shot and Other Immunizations
Immunization is the process whereby a person is made immune or resistant to an infectious disease, typically by the administration of a vaccine. Vaccines work by stimulating your body’s immune system to protect against a subsequent infection or disease.
Our pharmacists are immunization and injection certified, and you can receive a flu shot without an appointment. Pharmacists can only provide the flu shot vaccination to children 5 years of age and older in British Columbia.
Blood Pressure Monitoring
High blood pressure is considered one of the main risk factors associated with cardiovascular disease, stroke and kidney failure. We are equipped with a blood pressure kiosk which comfortably and automatically measures your heart rate, and your systolic and diastolic blood pressures. Our pharmacists are readily available to assist you and provide an interpretation of your readings. Come in today and speak with them about a healthy heart consultation.
Medicine Cabinet Clean-Up
We recognize that many medication errors are inadvertently caused by people taking expired medications. Adults and seniors may take expired or unused prescription medications that are no longer effective, which can potentially lead to dangerous interactions and consequently have a deleterious effect on your health. Whether you live in a busy household or you live by yourself, it is important that you clean and carefully check your medicine cabinet regularly to ensure you have safe medications.
At Pharmasave, we can carefully and properly dispose of your expired and unused prescription medications.
Smoking Cessation Program
If you are a smoker and have decided to quit, speak with one of our pharmacists about our smoking cessation program. Our pharmacists will take the time to perform an initial assessment and from there will develop a personalized quit plan to get you on the right track to stop smoking, and to improve your overall health and wellness. Remember, we are here to help you. If you have any questions about our smoking cessation service, please contact us or drop by the pharmacy. *The B.C. Smoking Cessation Program helps eligible BC residents who wish to stop smoking by providing complete coverage of the cost of nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) products (i.e. nicotine gum, lozenges, patches, inhaler) or contributing to the cost of specific smoking cessation prescription medications.
