Australia Post launches Pharmacy Home Delivery Service

Date: 30 March 2020

The Pharmacy Home Delivery Service assists vulnerable members of the community who may be in isolation and unable to access essential medications due to COVID-19. The announcement comes after the Federal Government announced it would allocate $25m to fund home medicine services in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Pharmacies can offer free delivery on prescriptions to their customers and can take advantage of the recently announced increased Australian Government rebate.

The new delivery option will support vulnerable Australians, including those isolating themselves at home on the advice of a medical practitioner, people over 70 and people with chronic health conditions.

The initiative was developed in association with The Pharmacy Guild of Australia and allows vulnerable members of the community to receive medication and other essential supplies under 500g through Australia Post's Express Post network, once a month.
