Credentialed Pharmacist Solutions

Embedding Quality Use of Medicines

Credentialed Pharmacist Solutions is a Section 90 community pharmacy and Australia’s leading provider of Aged Care Onsite Pharmacist services.

Our Vision

Our vision involves leading the sector in delivery of services that promote the safe and quality use of medicines. To achieve this, we work closely with care recipients, nurses, GPs and care providers and embed our support wherever Credentialed Pharmacists operate.

Residents and families

Our pharmacist is there to help you with all of your medication related queries and support.  Medication safety is enhanced, and we also like to minimise your medication costs by supporting you and your GP to deprescribe any unnecessary drugs.  

Choice Pharmacists are independent of your supply pharmacy service, but we work very closely with our supply colleagues to ensure your medications are safe and effective.

GPs

Credentialed Pharmacist Solutions has a GP referred medication review rate that is significantly higher than industry average.  This is reflective of the quality of our pharmacists’ input and the sophistication of our clinical systems in facilitating HMR (MBS Item 900) and RMMR (MBS Item 903) services.

RACF/Care provider

Credentialed Pharmacist Solutions is funded from May 2024 to embed Aged Care Onsite Pharmacists in facilities all around Australia.  We ensure industry and workplace role preparedness, provide streamlined systems and sophisticated embedded pharmacist clinical tools, governance, mentorship and accountability to ensure the residents and care provider can extract the greatest benefit from this new onsite pharmacist service.

Our client care providers can choose the onsite pharmacist services and inputs that meet their unique requirements the most.
