Braidwood Pharmacy has served the healthcare needs of the community since approximately 1886.

In recent years, Julie Ballard and Bente Hart have been the familiar faces at the chemist, supported by their loyal team.

From the first of May, the Braidwood community will enjoy the same great service, with a slightly new line-up of pharmacists. Julie Ballard is retiring, with a new partnership of female pharmacists set to continue years of professional healthcare advice.

Bente Hart along with new owners Kayla Lee, Natasha Jovanoska, Elise Apolloni, and Honor Penprase will be sure to look after the town’s medicine needs, great and small, for many years to come.

Pharmacists Bente, Kayla and Natasha will run the pharmacy day-to-day, while Elise is a Diabetes Educator Pharmacist who will provide a Diabetes clinic to help people living with the illness in the region.

Current and future pharmacist owner Bente Hart says, “We wish Julie every happiness as she enjoys some much-needed time with her family after so many years of commitment to the pharmacy.”

Braidwood pharmacy has been a serving the community since the 1800s.

Julie has been in the industry for almost 50 years, working as a pharmacist in towns across the south east including Moruya, Batemans Bay, and Ulludulla.

Braidwood Pharmacy will have a big year ahead, with plans for a renovation underway, a consultation room to be constructed to deliver more private healthcare, and an expansion of offerings including vaccination by trained immuniser pharmacists.
