Member Benefits

UFS membership is for everyone who wants pharmacy and medical care with attractive discounts and access to fantastic and convenient services. Most members are attracted to the 20% savings, however, there is much more value to gain from your UFS membership.

Discounts, Discounts and More Discounts!
UFS members save 20% discount off all retail prices at UFS Pharmacies (excluding restricted PBS prescriptions, boutique cosmetics, hire services, community benefit items sold at cost and Treloar's Coffee House). Over the course of a year, membership can save you and your family members hundreds of dollars.

Member Services
UFS members have access to an ever expanding range of member services. These services are either provided free to members or offered at substantially discounted prices. These services include:

We’re Open Late For Your Convenience
You and your kids aren’t always sick between the hours of 9am to 5pm and these days working late can mean forgetting to pick up a prescription before the close of business. So, UFS is open late at the following pharmacies:

MemberCare News (members only catalogue)
UFS produces its own members' newsletter which is mailed directly to members twice a year. MemberCare News is a great way of keeping in contact with members, communicating great specials and telling you all about new products and services.

Reciprocal Benefits
Friendly Society Dispensaries are situated right throughout Australia. Most dispensaries will honour your membership card – entitling you to discount wherever you might be.  You can view a list of Friendly Society Dispensaries here.

Attending The Annual General Meeting
As a member you are entitled to attend and vote at our Annual General Meeting, usually held in November each year. If you wish to receive our annual report or notice of AGM simply login to the secure membership section here.

Membership Cards
Your membership card will be posted to you after joining as a new member.  Your partner and dependant children under 18 years (full-time student children under 25 years) are entitled to discount, and can apply to receive their own card.  A dependant adult requiring full-time care is also able to register as a dependant.  We require membership cards to be presented for scanning when commencing any transaction.

If you have lost your membership card or require additional cards simply login to the secure membership section located at the top right hand corner of the navigation bar.

Delivery Service
UFS Dispensaries provides free delivery in urban areas of Ballarat, Melton and Bacchus Marsh for members who require special assistance or urgent prescription pick-up and delivery. Postal service is also available on request.
