NTUC Health’s Unity Pharmacy has been running Senior Tuesdays since 2006 to enable senior citizens above 50 years of age to enjoy a 5% discount off their purchases at all Unity stores. Last year, it served close to 200,000 seniors.
Unity Pharmacy also moderates healthcare costs for the public by introducing its own house brand range of vitamins and supplements in 2012, which cost on average 20% less than national brands.
Said Mr Chua Song Khim, CEO of NTUC Health, “The Unity house brand initiative was introduced to encourage working families to care for their health. By offering cost-effective alternatives of healthcare products, with quality that is comparable with current offerings, we hope more families will find it within their means to provide for their health needs. This is in line with our mission to empower the community to care for their health and to live life to the full. By end 2015, we aim to expand our range to more than 100 house brand products.”
