Medication

Acute Medication

Acute medication is prescribed medicine received for temporary illness or conditions such as infections, relieving of symptoms etc.

Pharmacy Advised Therapy (P.A.T.)

Did you know that P.A.T. medication can be obtained directly from the Pharmacy on the advice from a Pharmacist for minor illnesses eg: cold medication. This benefit helps to avoid the inconvenience of waiting in a Doctor's consulting room for minor illnesses.
