Pharmacy Alliance and the team at Williams Valley Pharmacy in Dungog are focusing on disaster recovery following a deluge of rain that fell in the early hours of Tuesday morning, 21 April.
Peter Harris, Pharmacy Alliance State Manager NSW, says that “All Williams Valley Pharmacy staff are well, though some have had water through their homes.
“Power and phone connection have been restored to the town, with a temporary water supply,” he says.
“The damage to Williams Valley Pharmacy is luckily not severe so we can restore the pharmacy quickly and focus on helping the town.”
During Wednesday and Thursday, although the pharmacy was not able to trade, the staff ensured that the community was able to access their medications if required.
The pharmacy received additional stock from Sigma and is now operating as best it can to support the Dungog community.
This has been devastating for the community with three reported deaths and flooding continuing throughout the area.
“Recovery for the Dungog community will take some time and Pharmacy Alliance will ensure that the Williams Valley Pharmacy is able to support the community through this difficult time,” says Darren Dye, CEO.
