The role of the pharmacist

Services offered at the pharmacy to help you monitor your health

Beyond taking care of your prescriptions, the pharmacist can also help you in various ways when it comes to your health. Several services are offered by your pharmacist at Accès pharma to help you manage your prescriptions and optimize the way you care for your health. Make sure you are aware of these services and use them when needed.

1.     New – Virtual Consultations 

Your pharmacist-owner affiliated with Accès pharma is there to provide close support towards caring for your health. They give priority to the accessibility and availability of healthcare, which is why they are happy to offer an all-new virtual consultation service. From the comfort of your home, you can now receive your pharmacist’s advice regarding treatment follow-ups via video call. When one of your follow-ups can be done virtually, your pharmacist will offer a remote appointment at a time slot that suits you.  

2.     Medication Prescriptions 

Thanks to the new Bill 31, pharmacists can do even more to help you deal with your health issues. Thanks to your pharmacist, access to healthcare is now quick and easy. In cases where a diagnosis is not required or for certain minor conditions, for which a treatment was already prescribed during the past 2 to 5 years, your pharmacist may now prescribe medication. They may even alter your treatment – if you experience adverse side effects, for example. Should this happen and as necessary, your doctor would be advised of changes.

3.    Scheduled Refill Service

Don’t worry: your pharmacist can prepare your prescription without you even having to contact them; just sign up for the scheduled refill service. Each time a prescription refill is prepared, a member of the pharmacy team will contact you to let you know that your medication is ready. You then can come and pick it up when it is convenient for you, or even have it delivered to your home. What’s more, your pharmacist will always be available to monitor your treatment. Why not use this service that is meant to make your life easier?

4.     Online File & Prescription Refills

Wherever you may be, you can now refill your prescriptions directly online by logging onto our prescription renewal area. If this is your first time using this platform, all you have to do is contact your pharmacist to get an access code, which will allow you to create your online file – and you’ll be ready to go! Refill your prescriptions easily and keep an eye on your prescriptions history, your doses, side effects, and more. This information about your health is only a click away!

New: Photo Transmission of Prescriptions. Do you have a new prescription that you would like to fill? It’s easy: You can now submit to your pharmacist a digital photo of your new prescriptions using your online prescription renewal area. 

5.     Immunizations 

Your pharmacist can now give you a flu shot or vaccinate you against shingles, hepatitis and other afflictions.* You can book an appointment at the time that works best for you and take advantage of this service when you’re picking up your prescription medication and other products from the pharmacy. For details and to check service availability, contact your pharmacy. 

Last but not least, don’t forget: Your pharmacy plays an important role in maintaining your health. Feel free to learn about the services offered on site that can make a big difference to your well-being and to your life!
