Daniel Andrews, Victorian Opposition leader, announced that Labor would support 20 pharmacies in the state to remain open 24 hours a day, with a nurse present to provide medical advice between 6pm and 10pm.

15 of these ‘super pharmacies’ will operate across Melbourne, with five more across regional and rural Victoria.
