“Our view is that passing on the discount is doing the right thing by the customers,” Mrs Lockett said.

“For some people, the discount will be a benefit.

“However for safety net customers, we are discussing the policy individually with them to make sure that it is going to help them.

“The vast majority of them have elected not to take it up because they want to maximise their time on the free prescriptions at the end of the year.

“For pensioner and concession card holders the discount is certainly a win – every dollar counts.

“But we want to make sure safety net customers do have a discussion with their pharmacist to see if it’s right for them.”
