The Pharmacy Guild of Australia was established in 1928 as the Federated Pharmaceutical Services Guild of Australia and was registered under the Federal Industrial Relations Act as an employers’ organisation for the owners of community pharmacies. It was set up to serve the interests of its members. Nearly 90 years later, it continues to serve its members and the Australian public who value their local pharmacy.
The Pharmacy Guild of Australia is the national peak body representing community pharmacy. It seeks to serve the interests of its members and to support community pharmacy in its role delivering quality health outcomes for all Australians.
The Guild is committed to supporting and maintaining the community pharmacy model as the most appropriate and efficient system of delivering medicines, medication management and related services to the Australian public.
The 5700 community pharmacies across Australia dispense over 300 million prescriptions annually...
A major Guild activity at all levels is close liaison and negotiation with governments, manufacturers, wholesalers and other organisations in the health care delivery system.
The Guild is registered under the Federal Fair Work Act (Registered Organisations) Act 2009 as an employers' organisation.
