Medical care has evolved and changed in the past few decades and patients now find themselves looking outside the traditional hospitals and clinics for advice and assistance. Pharmacists have always played an important role in this area dating back to the days of the Apothecary.  The apothecary historically was a medical professional who formulated and dispensed medicines to physicians, surgeons and patients.  They also offered general medical advice and a range of services that are now performed solely by other specialist practitioners, such as surgery and midwifery. Apothecaries often operated through a retail shop which, in addition to ingredients for medicines, sold some sundries and patent medicines. It therefore seems quite a logical transition for Pharmacies to be a place the community can turn to for advice on so many things.  Paramount Pharmasave has stepped up to the challenge and offers an award winning program at the store.
