For the past 20 years, Macdonald’s Prescriptions Renal Pharmacy has been working closely as partners with the BC Provincial Renal Agency (BCPRA). We provide an enhanced level of service to BC kidney patients throughout British Columbia. This service includes being a distribution partner with the BCPRA in the dispensing and delivering of the two most costly therapies, Erythropoietic Hormone Replacement Therapy, (EHRT Erythropoietin and Darbepoietin) and I.V Iron to all BCPRA patients and dialysis units across the province. We also dispense medications listed on the BCPRA formulary to patients who live within the Lower Mainland. Beginning on April 1, 2014, we have been supplying immunosuppressant medications for patients with glomerulonephritis who are registered with the BC Renal Agency. The first of its kind, this formulary sets out to improve and ensure equitable evidence-based use of life or organ saving medications for patients with glomerulonephritis.
