Let’s celebrate together on Tuesday 28th February.

We are celebrating our 10th Anniversary this year! Its hard to believe; For some of us it feels like only yesterday when we started from scratch as an Independent Irish Owned Pharmacy on Glasnevin campus of Dublin City University.

During the last decade – like many other retail businesses and those in the Pharmacy sector – we have had to endure many ups & downs, drastic cuts, obstacles and uncertainties so it has been with sheer hard work, determination and blood, sweat & (sometimes) tears to keep our heads above water and the business afloat. Thankfully through the dedication of our staff and you, our loyal customers that we have lived to tell our story.

Hopefully, we have succeeded in achieving our starting mission –

“to offer our customers a complete, professional healthcare service in an enjoyable, caring environment!”

Maybe that’s for our customers to decide??

So what have we acheived so far?

We’ve made lifelong friendships within DCU and the Glasnevin community. We’ve dispensed and delivered more than 250,000 prescriptions by hand with smiling faces to our loyal customers. At least 3,000 of these were house call visits outside of our opening hours.

We’ve innovated and developed over the years trying to give the best services available. Our photo section is one example with the constant drone of the printers and indicator of its success. Expanding our pharmacy consultation services to include yearly Flu vaccinations, 24 Hour Blood Pressure monitoring, Blood Screening and Food Intolerance testing amongst others.

An anniversary is a milestone in time that cannot be repeated. It is an opportunity to reflect on the success and good fortune we have also received but a time to ‘Give Back’ and celebrate with others.

That’s why this coming Tuesday 28th February we will be holding a One Day Bonanza Event in store. We wish to reward our loyal and valued customers that we have had the pleasure of serving throughout the years

The Pharmacy will be offering hourly raffles, spot prizes, exclusive discounts along with various events related to health, skin and fashion in store only.

So come along and join in the fun and celebrations this coming Tuesday 28th February for a fun-filled all day event.

Health Transformation 2017

The New Year has arrived and with it the opportunity to make a Health Transformation for 2017.  It’s time to forget about the indulgences over the Christmas season and put your best foot forward to pursue the long term goals you have always dreamed about.

Why choose this New Year then? Well, why not?

We are in the middle of an obesity epidemic, and according to Minister for Health Simon Harris; if things carry on as they are Ireland will be the most obese country in the world by 2020.

2017 can be Your Year.

Life is short, it is so important to live it well. If your planning to overhaul your health by starting a new fitness regime or eating more healthily you should also pay closer attention to what does and doesn’t make you happy. Maybe your emotional wellbeing needs a makeover too? Like everything else, keep the good, ditch the bad.

Every individual has the power and control to create their own pathways and destiny.

High_Cholesterol

With an approximate 30% of all deaths in Ireland resulting from heart disease it is important to keep your body in good shape. The measurement of cholesterol is one marker used to access your bodies heart health. Although cholesterol is an important element to your body’s function, too much cholesterol can lead to:

  • heart disease
  • stroke
  • atherosclerosis (a clogging or hardening of your arteries)

At Pharmhealth, we can test your cholesterol levels for you. Experts agree that men should have their first cholesterol screening before age 35 and women before age 45. To stay on the safe side, you may even want to begin having your cholesterol tested every five years after age 20.

If you have been diagnosed with diabetes, heart disease, stroke, or high blood pressure, or if you are taking medication to control your cholesterol levels, you should check your cholesterol every year no matter your age.

Who is at risk of developing high cholesterol?

Cholesterol testing is very important if you:

  • have a family history of high cholesterol or heart disease
  • are overweight or obese
  • drink alcohol frequently
  • lead an inactive lifestyle
  • smoke cigarettes
  • suffer from diabetes, kidney disease, polycystic ovary syndrome, or an underactive thyroid gland

All of these things can increase your risk for developing high cholesterol.

Prescription Collection Service

We can arrange to have your prescription collected for you from your doctor’s surgery and have it dispensed and ready for you to collect from the pharmacy.

This will save you having to make a separate journey to the surgery and prevent you having to wait in the pharmacy for your prescription to be dispensed.

Also, if any of your medication has to be ordered for your prescription we will ensure that everything is ready for you when you call in.

Please let any member of staff know that you would like your prescription collecting and which surgery you belong to. You will have to fill out a consent form for us to initiate this service for you. Remember that you can also order your prescriptions, and set up a repeat service online – visit our Repeat Prescriptions Service for details.

N.B. GP practice policies may vary and consent from the doctor must also be given for this service to be initiated.

Prescription Delivery Service

This service is currently only available to those genuinely ill, housebound or to Care Homes. We will deliver your medication (usually in the evening
time between 7pm – 8pm) the same day* provided you have requested your prescription before noon.

Same day* – Please note that a valid prescription must be on file in the pharmacy. Should you need a new prescription from your doctor your delivery
request may take a few days longer.
