Meaghers Pharmacy Group are delighted to announce that we now offer a Video Pharmacist service, the first of its kind in Ireland.
We have a team of pharmacists available for face-to-face consultations which are carried out via a secure video link. This means you or your carer can have any medication queries answered and concerns addressed while remaining safely in your home and without the need to physically visit your pharmacy.
We at Meaghers know that often when we dispense a new medicine to a customer there can be questions around side effects, drug interactions and how to take it. If you have been prescribed a new medicine by your doctor and would like to know more about it, our pharmacists are available to offer you advice, reassurance and peace of mind.
The areas we can advise on include:
- How your medication should be taken.
- The potential side affects you may experience.
- Any concerns you may have around your medication.
- If its an OTC product we can advise on possible interaction with existing medicines.
- Recommend OTC products to lessen side effects.
*Please note that we are unable to prescribe medication. You must speak to your GP regarding new prescriptions and any medical concerns you have.
For those of you who have had a prescription sent directly into us by your doctor, our pharmacists can agree a time that suits you for a video call before arranging to have your medicines delivered directly to your door. We can talk through the medication with you and address any concerns that you may have. These calls can take place on your mobile phone device, tablet or PC without the need for any additional technology.
Our highly experienced pharmacists are available Monday to Friday from 9-6pm (excluding bank holidays).
