Australia Post has announced an extension of its Pharmacy Home Delivery Service for a further six months.
Since March, pharmacies around the country have been able to offer free delivery on prescriptions to eligible customers through funding provided under the Federal Government’s COVID-19 health response.
Australia Post delivered on average more than 200 essential medical supplies per day, although the daily figure is higher in Victoria.
The initiative allows vulnerable members of the community to receive medication and other essential supplies under 500grams through Australia Post’s Express Post network.
Deliveries can be made to the home or to a local Post Office or 24/7 Parcel Locker for pick-up.
