Guild Digest

The Guild Digest presents a snapshot of pharmacy operations in Australia for the preceding financial year. Its primary purpose is to serve as a financial benchmarking tool for community pharmacy owners, managers and financial advisers in a rapidly evolving economic environment. It is also used by banks and pharmacy brokers to assist with pharmacy valuations, and in negotiations with Government for Community Pharmacy Agreements.  

To make sure Community Pharmacy is properly represented with the facts, the Guild conducts the Guild Digest Survey, an annual industry-wide survey. To ensure you get the remuneration your specific business needs, your pharmacy needs to be represented in the Digest.
