If you're looking for trans friendly pharmacies or pharmacies for transgender people you're in the right place. TransFriendly lists thousands of businesses around the world over that welcome and support transgender and non-binary people, including transgender friendly pharmacies.
A pharmacy is commonly known as a retail store that dispenses legally approved prescription medications, as well as over the counter remedies that do not require prescriptions.
Pharmacists and supporting staff who are qualified to perform the aspects of drug distribution and control must also be able to deal with the interpersonal relationships required to use pharmacy systems, and advise customers.
Today’s pharmacists must provide services that pass on the knowledge and skills they have to physicians, other pharmacists, and patients.
It’s no secret that a lot of transgender and non-binary patients have had some bad experiences attempting to get their prescriptions filled in pharmacies; from funny looks to public outings, we’re having none of it. You deserve to be acknowledged as your true self, and have every right to your medication.
We take our TransFriendly pledge very seriously, and every pharmacy choosing to sign our pledge must do the same. Your TransFriendly pharmacy will do everything they can to help you with your needs, and create a safe, friendly environment in-store.
Pharmacies now use pharmacy management software to track prescriptions. This software has a member profile for every patient. Every member profile will have details of the patients from their name, address, allergies, and insurance information, through to other important data.
Pharmacies also keep a hard copy of prescriptions. If the physician provided the patient with a hand-written script, the physician can contact the pharmacy to confirm that script was filled.
There are a few different pharmacies you could find yourself needing, and some may be more suitable/accessible for you to use, such as: retail pharmacies, hospital pharmacies, clinic pharmacies, home care pharmacies, mail order pharmacies, assisted living and long-term care pharmacies, and compounding pharmacies.
Pharmacies signing our pledge have ensured that you can rest easy during your visits. They will not allow any discrimination, and respect you with as much privacy and discretion as you need.
Our TransFriendly pharmacies will be here to support you every step of the way in your experience.
Our TransFriendly pharmacists will respect your true identity throughout every step of your experience. They are here to support you, and honour your choices.
