Waurn Ponds Pharmacy has an innovative approach to health. 

The one-stop shop is redefining the idea local pharmacy by providing a holistic approach to your wellbeing.

It’s not just a place to come when you’re sick. The pharmacy and its 25 staff provide a range of different health foods, vitamins and supplement, as well as nutrition advice and even support from an experienced personal trainer.

Pharmacists Patrick Smith said the store is changing the way people look at their local pharmacy.

“It used to be that you’d just pop into your pharmacy, pick up a script and off you go but with us you can come in any time, without an appointment, and chat to professionals is many fields of health whether you’re sick at the time or not,” he said.

The Waurn Ponds store, which has been trading for more than three years, still offers medical help from its six pharmacists, but also provides general advice on your health from a range of professionals.

You can visit the store and chat to a personal trainer about your exercise regime, a nutritionist about your diet and a naturopath about alternative or natural medicine. 

Naturopath Krystyna Sullivan, who has worked in a range of health food stores and clinics, said the variety of health professionals in store means there’s always someone to help and give advice.

“The great thing is we can approach your health from a number of different angles because we have all the resources at our finger tips right here,” she said.

Waurn Ponds Pharmacy prides itself on having customer orientated service meaning they can address each personal and their health individually.

“We’re all about intervention and helping you before you get sick,” Mr Smith said.

The pharmacy’s staff is encouraging everyone to head into the store this month and chat to some of its experienced and friendly professionals about any aspect of health and wellbeing.
