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
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 facilitated potential opportunities for Guild member pharmacies. The Pharmacy Business Support team regularly liaises with the PHNs to allow for collaboration with community pharmacies in their regions. Where opportunities arise, we work with the PHNs to increase the community pharmacy presence in primary health care and actively participate in the promotion of PHN educational and networking events.
