The Guild has partnered with TELUS Health to provide a comprehensive and modern EAP for our members' pharmacist and pharmacy assistant staff.
The Guild is a national employers’ organisation with almost 100 years’ experience representing and promoting the value of community pharmacy in the Australian healthcare system.
Established in 1927, the Pharmacy Guild of Australia is a membership-based organisation representing the owners of community pharmacies.
The Guild’s mission is to serve the needs and preferences of patients and health consumers across Australia using pharmacy’s unique role in medication management and safety.
A vibrant, dynamic and commercial community pharmacy network is essential for the health and wellbeing of all Australians.
Access expert staff and resources for advice and support across critical areas such as employment obligations, work health and safety, commencing and ceasing employment, and guidance to understand legislative changes and workflow implications.
Access complimentary membership with the Australasian College of Pharmacy, the one home for continuing professional development and education for the entire pharmacy industry. The college supports members and the wider industry, including academics, owners, pharmacists, interns, pharmacy assistants or students, throughout their whole pharmacy career.

We offer a comprehensive and modern EAP for your pharmacist and pharmacy assistant staff with our partner TELUS Health. In addition to professional counselling and therapy services, your team can access ongoing proactive health advice via a range of interactive digital tools such as a mobile app and website resources.
Our priority is to understand current and future challenges in the community pharmacy so we can represent your needs and concerns, and fight for what matters.
We advocate for you to be able to work to your full scope of practice, while also expanding your practice through initiatives including eHealth and e-prescribing, access and affordability of medicines, vaccination harmonisation and the introduction of mental health services.
We work with Commonwealth and state governments to ensure community pharmacies are considered front and centre where it matters. We continue to push for pharmacist to work to full scope and national harmonisation of pharmacy practice to improve equity of access to primary health care for all Australians.
