Pharmacy 194 is Geraldton’s first and only Compounding Pharmacy. Our staff have undertaken accredited training in the field of compounding and have a modern lab dedicated to preparing high quality medication made specifically for individual patient needs.
As a member of Professional Compounding Chemists of Australia (PCCA) you can guarantee we use the highest quality ingredients and state of the art equipment to ensure you receive a safe and accurate prescription.
Pharmacy 194 made the decision to start Geraldton’s first compounding pharmacy as we identified an urgent need for this service within the community. Many of our customers were having to send their prescriptions to Perth or even interstate in order to access the medications that they needed. This incurred additional costs and long wait times in order for them to get their prescription filled.
Lastly, we are also one of the few pharmacies in Geraldton that is entirely locally owned and operated and thus we are doing out bit in keeping it local!
What is Pharmaceutical Compounding?
Pharmacy compounding is the art and science of preparing customised medications for patients’ individual needs. It involves using a combination of high quality chemicals, state of art equipment and accredited training.
It is essentially a process of making medication from raw ingredients that is either not readily available on the Australian market, is currently out of stock or is not manufactured in the precise dose and/or dosage form that you have been prescribed.
It is ideal for any person requiring unique dosages and/or delivery devices to assist with their medication compliance and lifestyle.
