- Better manage your health conditions and improve your general wellbeing
- Improve the effectiveness of your medicines by using them correctly
What is a Diabetes MedsCheck?
A Diabetes MedsCheck involves a one-on-one consultation with your local Chemmart® Pharmacist. They will review your type 2 diabetes management plan in store to help you:
- Improve your understanding of your diabetes medication
- Use your blood glucose monitoring devices more effectively
- Manage your blood glucose levels

What's the difference between MedsCheck and services such as Home Medicines Review (HMR) and Residential Medication Management Review (RMMR)?
A Home Medicines Review and Residential Medication Management Review are conducted in your home and require a referral from your doctor. MedsChecks are in-pharmacy services, and don’t require a referral.
