Medicine home delivery services are now available to help vulnerable people stay at home and reduce their exposure to COVID-19.
Participating pharmacies can offer customers with diabetes free delivery of medicines using the Australia Post Express Post network. There is a weight limit for parcels of 500 grams
Vulnerable Australians, including people over 70 and people with chronic health conditions such as diabetes are eligible for the service.
For people with diabetes, participating pharmacies may be able to add your NDSS products to your home delivery of medicines.
Check with your local community pharmacy to see if they are offering this service.
