HBF acquires Friendlies Chemists as part of ‘health partner’ strategy 


On 2 April 2013 HBF will complete the acquisition of Friendlies Holdings and become the franchisor for the 25 Friendlies pharmacies in WA. 

HBF Managing Director, Rob Bransby said that the acquisition of one of the two largest West Australian pharmacy groups was a major step in HBF’s transition to become a true health partner for the fund’s 900,000 members. 

“From next month HBF and HBF members will have direct access to a network of trusted health professionals. 

“In the coming months we’ll work with Friendlies pharmacists to introduce a range of health related services that our members will be able to use either free of charge or at a discounted rate” Mr Bransby said. 

He said the range of services was still under consideration but would include both preventative health services to help HBF members stay well and others that would help them manage their existing health conditions.

It could include medication management, skin checks, travel health advice, immunisations, cholesterol checks, wound care, asthma control, blood pressure monitoring and weight management.  

Mr Bransby said that the marriage of two of WA’s longest established health brands was a natural fit. 

“HBF and Friendlies are both trusted WA organisations that have been committed to the health of Western Australians for decades. HBF is a member-focused, not for profit fund while Friendlies has its origins in the Friendlies Societies which were crucial in helping West Australians access health services long before Australia had a public health system.

In 2012 HBF embarked on a five year strategy to become a health partner for HBF members, with declared goal of creating a “unique community of healthier happier people”.
