Guild Membership

Delivering compelling value to our members

We’re here for you to ensure you are there for your patients

Established in 1928, the Pharmacy Guild of Australia is a membership-based organisation which has represented the owners of community pharmacy and promoted the value of community pharmacy in the Australian health care system for over 90 years.

Together we will be working to ensure your pharmacy remains viable and continues to serve the needs and preferences of patients and consumers. We have developed a vision, roadmap and member benefits aimed at helping you build your business to 2025 and beyond.

We’re focused on the viability of your business. We continue to advocate strongly on Members’ behalf and we are pleased to continue to deliver tangible benefits for you.
