Membership Benefits

The Pharmacy Guild delivers a range of services and benefits to assist members in operating professional businesses that most importantly, service the healthcare needs of patients.

Below is an overview of just some of the services we provide:

Pharmacy and Business Support

No matter how big or small your problem is, our people have the skills to help you resolve your issues and make the most of opportunities. Helping you is our first priority.

You can access business support or referrals on issues such as pharmacy ownership, relocations, ownership models and pro-forma agreements.

Training

The training courses for pharmacy and dispensary assistants are endorsed by the pharmacy industry and accredited by both State and Federal Governments.

Industrial Relations

As a member you can access dedicated telephone support and advice for up-to-date information on industrial awards, wage rates, industrial relations issues and workplace legislation. Our extensive online resources also provide information on important workplace relations issues.

Government Relations

The Pharmacy Guild is the recognised and respected voice for community pharmacy. You can be confident that your pharmacy’s needs are voiced with decision-makers.

We have a strong history representing the interests of community pharmacy in key policy areas such as the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme, business, taxation and economic reform, education and training, and workplace relations, at a state and federal level, and with relevant industry bodies.

Guild Insurance

Guild Insurance and Financial Services is still 100% owned by the Pharmacy Guild of Australia (PGA) and works very closely with the pharmacy community to monitor insurance and financial trends affecting pharmacists.

With a national network of regional offices, they provide individual pharmacists, their pharmacies and the broader profession with a comprehensive range of products and value-added services that are tailored to their needs.

Events

Make the most of the many networking and educational opportunities offered to members at substantially discounted rates.

Through briefings, seminars, training and social events, build your expertise, network with other health professionals and extend your connections beyond the realm of your pharmacy.

Implementation Assistance

New legislation, systems and initiatives are constantly implemented in your pharmacy.
Finding the right information amongst all the other demands of running your pharmacy is a challenge, therefore the Pharmacy Guild provides relevant and reliable information to implement and manage such initiatives with ease.

Marketing and Public Relations

Do you want to know what manufacturers, wholesalers and other industry bodies are doing and where they’re heading? Want to promote your pharmacy to the media, or make presentations to community groups, but don’t have the time?

The Pharmacy Guild constantly liaises with the media, pharmacy industry and general community to position community pharmacy as the ultimate frontline healthcare provider.
