Rapid antigen test is now available at the pharmacy. It is free to whoever is eligible.

The criteria to get the free test are:

1) Asymptomatic, unvaccinated individuals over 12 years and 3 months leaving Auckland. Port Waikato is included in the boundary with Auckland, and travellers across the boundary must follow the same rules.

2) Asymptomatic, unvaccinated domestic travellers over 12 years and 3 months from any other part of the country, who travel with a transport company that requires evidence of a negative test result.

Rapid antigen testing is:

not a replacement for diagnostic testing for COVID-19;
only used for asymptomatic testing for surveillance purposes; and
not a replacement for vaccination.
People with symptoms consistent with COVID-19, such as cold or flu symptoms, should contact Healthline (0800 358 5453) or their doctor to find out if they need a test.

The swab is taken nasally and only goes in 2cm into the nose, the result is available in 15 minutes.

The test kit is not available to be purchased for home use at this stage at least until the end of the year until advised by the Ministry of Health.

We have our loyalty programme up and running now. It is all done electronically so you do not have to carry a card around. All you need to do is us let us know your name each time you purchase anything from our retail section. Each time you spend $100 you get $5 off automatically. We will also remind you when you are close to reaching your $5 discount! 😊

Hi everyone we are Daniel and Jiin the new owners of the pharmacy. We are owners of Taihape pharmacy and the sushi shop in Taihape. In 2017 we have opened a container sushi shop here in Ohakune and loved the atmosphere here in the Ruapehu region so we are very excited to be here. Daniel will be here most Mondays and Tuesdays.
As you may have heard already we are no longer part of the Unichem brand. However we are already working to provide amazing promotions for the shop and a flyer with specials will be sent to households in Ohakune, Raetihi and surrounding areas so keep an eye out for that in the near future. We are also going to run an in-house loyalty programme and voucher scheme which should run in the near future.
There will be a lot more variety of stock in the shop so there are some exciting changes to look forward to.
We are also going to work hard to improve systems in the dispensary to allow more efficient handling of prescriptions.
So in the mean time we look forward to getting to know the community and serving you guys for all your medication and well being requirements!

No … we’re not selling flowers … but we are selling!

After owning and operating Unichem Ruapehu for more than 20 years, it’s now time to spend more time in the garden!
From 1 November, the pharmacy will have a new owner … Daniel Choi.
The pharmacy will be rebranded Ohakune Pharmacy, and will no longer be under the Unichem umbrella. Some familiar faces will, however, remain, as Reta and Steph are being employed by Daniel.
Thank you to you, our always pleasant, friendly and loyal customers … it’s been a pleasure to serve you all these years.
We wish Daniel, his team and the whole community, all the very best for the future. May you be happy and healthy.

Kindest regards,
Margie and John

Good news! We’re open! 😀
But please, if you’re wanting to collect a prescription, please give us a little bit of time to work though the backlog.
Thank you once again, for your patience and understanding. 😘

Hi All … we’re very sorry for the disruption that the snow and subsequent road closures have had on our services.
We have pharmacists attempting to get to Ohakune from both the north and the south. We’re hoping that at least one of the roads will be open soon!
The law does not allow us to open without a qualified pharmacist.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. We will keep you posted.

Hi All ... we hope you’re all enjoying the snow! ❄️❄️❄️ Unfortunately, although snow looks pretty, it caused a few roads to be closed! This meant our staff were unable to get to work!
We’re pleased to say, that as some of the roads are now open, we are now open! 😀
We have limited staff, and a bit of a backlog, but we’d be happy to see you ... if you can get here! 😜

15/05/2020

WOOHOO ... we’re at LEVEL 2!

Well done everyone! Great work! But what does this mean?!

For us, it means we’ve taken down the ropes, and we’re now welcoming more than one person into the store at a time! 😀

But for the safety of all, please continue to use the hand sanitiser at the door, and maintain social distancing at all times.

Feel free to wander through the store, but refrain from unnecessary touching of products. As for buying? Fill your boots! 😜

For non urgent prescriptions, please allow us plenty of time for processing, so you don’t have to wait in store. And again, to save you waiting, please phone ahead, or email us, to order your repeats.

Thanks 🙏 for your support. It really is appreciated.

And remember ... shop local!

Amy is currently away on maternity leave, and due to the impact on our business of Covid 19, we will not be replacing her. This may at times, impact on our service delivery.
To assist us with workflow, and save you having to wait ... potentially out in the cold 🥶 ... where possible, for non urgent medication, please give us a day or two to get your prescriptions ready.
