Review of Pharmacy Remuneration and Regulation - Release of Discussion Paper

Page last updated: 27 July 2016

The Chair of the Review Panel, Prof. Stephen King has announced the release of the Review's Discussion Paper, inviting formal submissions to the Review.

Now available from the Review web page, the Discussion Paper aims to stimulate debate on both the current arrangements for pharmacy remuneration and regulation, and how these arrangements may be improved in the interests of the Australian community.

To support submissions to the Review, the Review Panel will host a round of public forums in metropolitan and regional centres across Australia, from 1 August to 1 September 2016.

A short online questionnaire will also shortly be made available from the Review web page.  The questionnaire will allow both pharmacists and members of the general public to respond to core issues raised in the Discussion Paper in lieu of, or in addition to, written submissions to the Review.

The closing date for submissions to the Review is 23 September 2016.
