QCPP is a quality assurance program for community pharmacy, providing support and guidance on professional health services and pharmacy business operations.
This program aims to reduce the incidence of blood borne viruses and injecting related injuries and disease. The program supplies sterile injecting equipment to injecting drug users with the aim of ensuring users do not share needles, thus reducing the spread of blood borne viruses within the wider community
On the 24th March 2016, the Queensland Government amended the Health (Drugs and Poisons) Regulation 1996 (HDPR) to enable approved pharmacists and interns to administer influenza, measles and pertussis immunisations to adults aged 18 and over in a community pharmacy setting.
We understand that the pharmacy industry can be a challenging place - business support can often be hard to find and comes at a price. As such, The Pharmacy Guild of Australia, Queensland Branch has developed the Pharmacy Business Support Team whose goal is to find the best way our expertise can assist you and your business.
The establishment of PHNs has opened up potential opportunities for Guild member pharmacies. The QLD Branch has introduced a Professional Services Pharmacist - Primary Healthcare role to develop and apply for funding opportunities from PHNs and other stakeholders, as well as assist individual member pharmacies in their own applications.
The Sixth Community Pharmacy Agreement (6CPA) between the Australian Government and the Guild provides approximately $18.9 billion to over 5000 community pharmacies for dispensing PBS medicines, providing pharmacy programmes and services and for the Community Service Obligation arrangements with pharmaceutical wholesalers.
Rural Support Programmes support targeted programmes and services to improve access to PBS medicines and services for people living in rural and remote regions of Australia
