Since 1911, National Pharmacies has been caring for the community providing access and value for our members in the dispensing of quality medications, optical and beauty ranges and the provision of health services. With our roots firmly planted in South Australia we have expanded into the eastern states of Australia and celebrate over 260,000 members across our 46 community pharmacies and 20 optical outlets.
We give back to the communities in which we operate through a number of sponsorship and support programs. We are the faces behind the National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant, where we get to walk arm in arm with our valued members; support junior sport programs with our involvement with the National Pharmacies SANFL juniors and a number of local sports sponsorships; support KickStart for Kids with various fundraising drives, and most recently the 20/20 project providing free glasses for members children aged 12 years and under.
Our organisation is underpinned by our values of care, communicate, collaborate and celebrate.
