The Pharmacy Guild of Australia is a national employers’ organisation with over 80 years of experience in representing and promoting the value of the role of community pharmacy in the Australian health care system. Community pharmacies are a vital part of our national health system with the potential to make an even bigger contribution to the health of 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.
