UFS Chemist is a not-for-profit community pharmacy that has been operational in the Mount Gambier district since 1916 when the Friendly Societies, prompted by large increases in the cost of drugs during World War One decided to establish a dispensary to ensure that members would be able to access quality and affordable medication.
In line with true not-for-profit principles UFS Chemist Mount Gambier uses business income to improve member services and benefits and also for the key priority of investing in our community well being.
UFS Chemist provides annual scholarships to all four Mount Gambier secondary schools and also sponsors many local sporting clubs, community groups and events including:
Mount Gambier New Year’s Eve Festival
St Martin’s Ladies Fellowship
And many more over the years.....
