Compounding services

Compounding is the process of custom manufacturing a medication for a specific patient and to the specification of the prescriber. At Slade Pharmacy we take great pride in compounding medications and offering important therapeutic options for our prescribers and the highest quality medications for our patients.

As a leading compounding pharmacy we are able to supply medications Australia-wide. We are also able to supply to home and business locations for your convenience. No order is too small.

Our flagship compounding pharmacy is Slade Pharmacy Compoundia situated in the Docklands precinct of Melbourne. Our flagship sterile compounding pharmacy is located within the Epworth Hospital at Richmond, just outside of the Melbourne CBD.

All are medicines are custom made and we work with prescribers to ensure that the optimal formulations and products are made each time. No matter how complex the situation, our highly experienced pharmacists are there to help.
