The Gold Coast’s first 24 hour pharmacy is now open at the John Flynn Private Hospital in Tugun. The new facilities were officially opened onsite by Hon Jann Stuckey MP and have been open to the public since the beginning of May.
Replacing the former Monday to Friday retail pharmacy at the hospital, the new pharmacy is open to the public 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
It joins only one other 24 hour pharmacy operating in Queensland, so it is certainly a rare but welcome service for the Southern Gold Coast community to make use of when emergencies call at all hours of the day and night.
The pharmacy is located at 42 Inland Drive, Tugun at the John Flynn Private Hospital, and is also run by Ramsay Health Care as owners of the Hospital.
