Fees and Charges Categorisation

Partial fees apply

Fees and Charges Description

Prescription charges apply in some cases.

Prescription Charges are a tax set by the Government (not the pharmacist) - they do not reflect the cost of any medicine. Currently overseas owned pharmacy chain groups are discounting prescription fees (Government Prescription Charges) in an effort to influence the Australian Government where such practices are illegal, this practice is not sustainable and the pharmaceutical industry in our country is under threat.

The first Labour Government under Michael Joseph Savage and Peter Fraser introduced Pharmaceutical Benefits under which prescriptions were FREE. The Lange Labour Government introduced a Prescription Charge in 1985 thereafter various governments both National and Labour have tinkered with Prescription Charges to restrict access to health - this false economy affects the whole country. We see more costly wastage of expensive medicines and dispensing data for various health groups is distorted by medicines supplied directly by GPs in remote areas to avoid fees.

We believe our pharmacy offers very good added value.

Medication for long term conditions

This service is designed for people with long-term illnesses who may need support with their medicines. An assessment is used to identify the things that affect their ability to take medication as prescribed. Pharmacists work together with the patient to address each issue.

They can also provide you with a reminder service (via text message, email or phone call) to let you know when your next supply of medications is ready for collection. If you are having difficulties managing your medicines (e.g. forgetting to take them), please ask your pharmacist whether this service is right for you.
