With a dedicated team including three full-time pharmacists, Thrive Pharmacy holds a respected reputation of providing professional, specialised advice to the Townsville community. In particular, the pharmacy is a leading Townsville specialist in diabetes management, with two Credentialled Diabetes Educators on staff and close ties to Diabetes Australia. Many GPs around Townsville confidently refer their patients to Thrive Pharmacy for management of diabetes and other chronic conditions.
Thrive Pharmacy is a compounding pharmacy, allowing medications to be customised when a mass-produced product is not available or suitable. Additional professional services include continence advice, with pharmacist Dianne Graham specialising in children’s ongoing bedwetting concerns. The Thrive pharmacist team also provides on-site flu, whooping cough and MMR (measles, mumps & rubella) vaccinations. In addition, the pharmacists can administer the myDNA test, before evaluating results and formulating a genetics-based health plan.
Beyond these specialist services, Thrive Pharmacy provides comprehensive pharmacist support – from prescription services to blood glucose & cholesterol testing, from smoking cessation plans to asthma advice, from pain relief management to patient medication profiles. These services are supplemented by a carefully selected range of products, including mobility aids from Making Life Easy, quality supplements from Bioceuticals and Metagenics, and other leading brands such as MooGoo, Sun Bum Sunscreen, Ego (QV), Dermeze, Ethical Nutrients, and The Man Shake. In addition, selected products are available for hire (including bedwetting alarms, Medela breast pumps, crutches & nebulisers).
Thrive Pharmacy has been locally owned and operated by the Graham family for over 15 years, and is committed to providing professional, expert healthcare advice. Conveniently located at Annandale Village Shopping Centre on Yolanda Drive (less than 5 mins from The Townsville Hospital), the pharmacy is open 6 days per week, including until 7pm weeknights.
