Please come into Westmead Fertility Centre when we reopen on 2 January if you are day 2 or 3 of your period. Make sure you have all the medications you will require before the holiday season begins and bring them with you on this day.
McBeaths Pharmacy located in Westmead Hospital will be open over the holiday period, except for 25, 26, 30 December, and 1 January 2019. Other local pharmacies can assist you with your medication requirements if you provide sufficient time for your medication to be ordered in.
