Together with our trusted practitioners, we aim to achieve the best possible results and the highest quality of life for our patients

Every compounded medicine involves a collaboration between the practitioner, the patient and the compounding pharmacist. At Kingsway, we refer to this as the Patient Triad. The process enables everyone to be kept in the loop about the patient's medication, about their health and about the outcomes.
It's extremely important when Kingsway deals with individual patients that we're able to communicate and discuss their unique needs in order to deliver a solution that best suits them.
Over the last 20 years Kingsway Compounding has collaborated with many practitioners. We have plenty of good relationships with practitioners and have developed a certain amount of trust in regards to their patient's health.
Kingsway are very fortunate to work with many likeminded, intelligent practitioners that do an enormous amount of extra study to find out ways to improve treatment for their patients. The team at Kingsway connect with our practitioners at conferences and visit them regularly to talk about what's happening in the industry. Through constant communication, we're always learning from them and hopefully they learn just as much from us.
We encourage our practitioners and even our patients to come and visit Kingsway. We've very proud of our systems and what we do and we welcome anyone interested to tour our purpose-built lab for a closer look.
At Kingsway Compounding we namely work with Integrative Practitioners or those practitioners that subscribe to Integrative Medicine.
“The term Integrative Medicine (IM) refers to the blending of conventional and natural/complementary medicines and/or therapies along with lifestyle interventions and a holistic approach – taking into account the physical, psychological, social and spiritual wellbeing of the person – with the aim of using the most appropriate, safe and evidence-based modality(ies) available.”
