Calanna take pride in leading the way

Innovative integrated whole health service model

From the early 90's the Calanna Pharmacy Group have been operating an integrated service model in pharmacy. The first pharmacy in Northern Australia to introduce in store Naturopaths, the group now offer a sleep clinic, Bowen Therapy, Acupuncture, Massage and Nursing support as a part of their service model. Mario Calanna also worked with his own Naturopath over 20 years ago to develop his own range of natural healing and treatment ointments, sprays, tonics and essential oil blends. They continue to lead the way with an integrated, holistic model of care in their pharmacy's.  Calanna have partnered with a range of other Queensland owned natural health businesses to expand their in store whole health produce and product range for natural skin and body health across Queensland, truly making them a one stop health destination.

Face to face dispensing

Calanna were the first pharmacy group in Northern Australia to introduce face to face dispensing of medicines by our pharmacists in the early 90's. Considered revolutionary in its time, our pharmacists have been available to greet our customers on the floor when they arrive to discuss their health and treatment needs for the past 20 years. It is in keeping with our philosophy to provide health destinations that give people peace of mind, provide expertise and trusted professional advice and make what is a potentially distressing or confusing time easier. We love that we are a big family at Calanna Whole Health Pharmacies and we want you to feel like a part of that.

Digital Voice Operated Interactive staff training system

For many years Calanna have also been first movers on new technology and innovation in pharmacy. Our approach to business is to ensure people receive the best experience and we do that through developing our people and keeping our processes at the cutting edge.

We take our role in professionally developing our staff seriously to ensure you are dealing with the most qualified, up to date and credentialed staff in the industry. Our staff are the most regularly trained pharmacy staff in town, thanks to our interactive voice activated staff training program. We developed this training app in partnership with Voista, to specifically meet Calanna's needs. It means our staff can easily train regularly to keep up to date with any advancements in medicines and supplements and be armed with the knowledge and expertise in pharmacy and natural health we are renowned for.

Best practice medication management and dispensing

Calanna is at the cutting edge of pharmacy innovation with the installation of robotic dispensing at two of its locations (Woree and Kirwan).  As one of the first pharmacy's in Cairns and the first in Townsville to implement this robotic technology for managing and dispensing medicines Calanna continues to lead the way in providing advanced and improved service models through technology.

In particular, the advantages of robotic dispensing using the ROWA system include:

FAST dispensing   |   More ACCURATE management   |  Greater QUALITY assurance with automated expiry date checking and batch checking   |   Improved SECURITY and safety – our ROWA machines are security and monitored 24/7   |   More TIME for pharmacists to talk with you on important matters such as how to take your medicine and any important questions you may have on your medicines or whole health needs.

"Calanna has continually advanced our value for customers by being first movers to adopt new technology and by providing cutting edge service models in our industry for more than 40 years."
