The Guild has reminded Australians to prepare for travel during the holidays, as it launches a new website
The “Find a Pharmacy” and “Ask Your Pharmacists” sites have been combined to create a new Guild website for consumers which contains a series of advice articles.
These include how to handle health issues when travelling away from home.
The Guild has prepared a medicines checklist to assist people planning a trip away with their children.
The checklist includes suggestions of things to consider packing to treat pain, fever and colds; protect a child’s skin from bugs and the sun, tummy upsets and more.
Along with suggestions on preparing for a range of different holidays (from beach and camping, to winter and overseas), the medicines checklist can be viewed here: https://www.findapharmacy.com.au/advice/travelling-with-children
The new website provides advice from pharmacists on common health issues and educates consumers on the range of services available in community pharmacies, while also helping them to find the right pharmacy that offers the services they need.,
As well as helping them find a suitable pharmacy by location and/or service provided, the new website has consumer information on more than 50 health topics and medical conditions.
The site can be accessed at https:www.findapharmacy.com.au
