History (Since 1916)
On 4 July 1916, Perry's Pharmacy was opened on 448 Neerim Road Murrumbeena Victoria 3163 by Wm. B. Perry, son of Francis John Perry. The Perry family has always had a pharmacist actively engaged in the profession since 1878 except for during war periods. Many of the pharmacies located within the catchment of the City of Glen Eira were also opened by the Perry Family, including pharmacies in Carnegie, Hughesdale and Ormond.
Around the period of December 1973 to January 1974, the pharmacy in Neerim Road was sold to David S. Jones and subsequentially renamed David Jones Pharmacy.
Mr David S. Jones had studied at the College of Pharmacy in Victoria in 1947 and completed a highly successful course. He won the second H.T. Tompsitt Scholarship in his second year and was nominated for the Nicolas Bursary, which took him through the Fellowship course, in which he gained distinction in Chemistry and the Analysis of Drugs and the History of Pharmacy, and a pass in Bacteriology (The Australasian JOURNAL OF PHARMACY, January 1952).
In April 2013 David Jones Pharmacy Online was successfully launched.
David Jones Pharmacy Murrumbeena is an accreditated pharmacy for the Pharmacy Guild of Australia’s Quality Care Pharmacy Program (QCPP).
QCPP is a quality assurance program for community pharmacies that ensures that pharmacies are able to provide:
1. A higher level of professional and customer service;
2. Assurance that the pharmacy conforms to industry and professional standard;
3. Confidence that the pharmacy has mechanisms in place to identify and eradicate any customer issues or problems;
4. Confidence that pharmacy staff are trained to refer the best level of assistance, and that they will not provide advice in areas outside their area of responsibility; and
5. The pharmacy team is dedicated to meeting customers’ health care needs and providing excellent customer care.
To ensure that pharmacies meet the Australian Standard they must undergo an external audit every two years. These audits are conducted by QCPP Endorsed Assessors and are designed to protect the integrity of the program. The assessors are trained professionals with experience in performing on-site audits over a broad range of management systems including health and safety, quality, environment, financial, human resources, energy and water management systems.
