WATCH THIS VIDEO INTRODUCING OUR O’LOUGHLIN’S MEDICAL PHARMACY TEAM AND BUSINESS:
https://www.facebook.com/oloughlinsmedicalpharmacy/videos/664183430745209/

O’Loughlin’s Medical Pharmacy has been servicing the health needs of the St Ives community and families since 1995. We are conveniently open 7 days a week with extended trading hours from 8am to 8pm on weekdays (until 9pm on Thursdays) and 8.30am to 6pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

Our pharmacy offers a comprehensive range of medication and health-related products.
We also aim to provide our customers with advice and be an information destination for all aspects of health. We offer a number of services for our community – many of them for free.

Here are our FREE services:
- Baby Nurse – an experienced midwife and baby health nurse is available for free consultations every 2nd and 4th Monday of the month between 10am until 2pm. Parents can drop in; they don’t need to pre-book, which is very convenient, especially for families with very young babies.
- Naturopath – our resident Naturopath is available for free consultations every Friday from 9am till 1pm. We have offered this service for 21 years!
- Prescription Reminder Service – our customers can opt in to have a reminder sent to them when their script is due.
- Medication Review consultations – when our customers take 5 or more medicines or have recently had a significant health event, we offer a free review of their medication to make sure that they take the right products in the correct doses and we often suggest generic / cheaper alternatives.
- Blood pressure measurement and monitoring
- Medication disposal service
- Baby weighing scales
- Glucose monitor clean & check
- Wound care service.

Here are some of our other services:
- Flu vaccinations
- Measles, mumps, rubella and whooping cough vaccinations
- Compounding
- Sleep apnoea testing
- Cholesterol screening
- Anaemia screening
- Weekly medication packing service
- Breast pump hire.

We aim to be the “health information centre” in our community. In order to get there, we have initiated a number of educational campaigns for our local residents:

1) Tick education campaign (Dec. ‘18 – March ’19) – we are aware that a lot of our customers do not know that they should not use tweezers to remove ticks when bitten. We have created a marketing campaign to educate them about the correct procedure (Medifreeze spray needs to be used to kill the tick instantly, otherwise the tick may release a toxin, which can result in the mammalian allergy). The following components were executed:
- Info Sheets with detailed description on how to treat ticks were distributed at the pharmacy.
- All local schools were called with a request to pass on the Info Sheet (potential to reach approx. 1300 – 1500 local families).
- A digital marketing campaign (Facebook and e-mails sent to our local residents).
- POS materials visible at the pharmacy.

2) Flu prevention and vaccination campaign (March – July ’19).
The goal of this campaign was to educate our residents about why it is important that they get their flu vaccination. Our pharmacists also researched available medicines and recommended the best ones to treat and prevent colds & flue.
The flu shots were also conveniently offered at our store (no booking and GP script required).

3) Hay Fever campaign (scheduled for Oct. – Dec. ’19).
We aim to educate our customers about the best ways to avoid and treat hay fever.
Our pharmacists have analysed the medications that are available on the market and have recommended the best solutions for our customers.

We have very active social media accounts with growing following:

We are proud sponsors of the St Ives Netball Club, St Ives Rugby Club, St Ives AFL Club, St Ives Bowling Club and Ku-Ring Gai Arts Society.

But most of all, we pride ourselves in becoming a true “neighbourhood” pharmacy.
Our staff have wonderful relationships with our customers and many of them come to our pharmacy not only for the medications and health advice. They return as they enjoy the friendship, attention and respect they receive from our team.
