Terry White pharmacist with customer

HBF and TerryWhite Chemmart have announced a new partnership to deliver pharmacy-based health and wellbeing services to even more Australians.

More than 420 TerryWhite Chemmart pharmacies in Queensland, New South Wales and the ACT, Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia are now part of the HBF Member Plus network.

It means eligible HBF members visiting one of these pharmacies will pay no out-of-pocket fees for an annual flu vaccination, dose administration aids, or a private health check (including body mass index, blood pressure and cholesterol measurements).

TerryWhite Chemmart Executive General Manager Nick Munroe said the partnership further cemented the network's commitment to being leaders in health by providing Australians with even more opportunities to stay healthy and the network with more opportunity to service customers.

“TerryWhite Chemmart and HBF share a common goal which is to improve the health and wellbeing of Australians by providing better access to health services. Every single one of our pharmacies is focussed on delivering a high-quality patient experience, particularly in the areas of vaccinations and other health services, so we are certainly well positioned to cater to the health needs of HBF members,” Mr Munroe said.

HBF Executive General Manager Health Dr Daniel Heredia said the arrangement complemented HBF's existing Member Plus pharmacy arrangements in WA.

“It was clear TerryWhite Chemmart, with the largest community pharmacy network in the country and a strong focus on health, was best positioned to support HBF's east coast membership base and our growth aspirations,” he said.

“Given the pandemic, more and more people have a renewed focus on their health so we're thrilled to engage with TerryWhite Chemmart to make being and staying healthy even easier.

“TerryWhite Chemmart and HBF are strategically aligned and able to leverage our combined expertise to provide trusted, accessible services to help members stay happy and healthy.”
