Ballarat’s Supercare Pharmacy
A free nursing service is now available every night at the Andrews Labor Government’s first five Supercare Pharmacies, for face-to-face health advice and treatment for minor illnesses and injuries.
Ballarat’s Supercare Pharmacy can be found at UFS Dispensaries located at 717 Strurt Street, Ballarat.
Supercare Pharmacies operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with a nurse on site from 6pm to 10pm.
The Andrews Labor Government has committed $28.7 million to introduce 20 Supercare Pharmacies by 2018, designed to help families, shift workers and others in need of non-emergency care after hours.
For many families and individuals, minor injury and illness are experienced outside of business hours, with a trip to the local hospital often the only option available.
The first five Supercare Pharmacies opened in August 2016 and are located in:
• Ballarat – UFS Dispensaries 717 Sturt Street Ballarat
• Ascot Vale – Ascot Vale Pharmacy
• Craigieburn – Amcal Pharmacy Craigieburn
• Wantirna South – Pharmacy@Knox
• Yarraville – Carnovale Pharmacy.
