UFS has opened its newest Ballarat based pharmacy, with the former Nova Discount Pharmacy at 616 Sturt Street, Ballarat (better known as the Haintz Pharmacy), now a UFS Pharmacy.  CEO Ms Lynne McLennan said “UFS has been an integral part of the Ballarat community for 138 years, providing caring and professional service since the opening of its first dispensary in 1881. We are delighted to now be offering this same level of service from the UFS Pharmacy at 616 Sturt Street, Ballarat. The existing Sturt Street pharmacy on the other side of the street (at 717 Sturt Street) will continue to operate as a 24 hour Supercare Pharmacy, with our newest store providing convenience for customers travelling from the hospital precinct towards the CBD during business hours.” “This is an exciting step in our goal of being a leading healthcare business that meets future as well as current health needs in our communities”, Ms McLennan added.
