Bureaucracy backs pharmacy


Five Queensland state government departments have signed up to have their staff vaccinated in pharmacies

The Pharmacy Guild of Australia, Queensland branch, announced this week that it had secured agreements with the departments to provide pharmacy flu vaccinations for their staff in Guild member pharmacies.     

 Queensland Branch President Tim Logan said that the remunerated program creates a streamlined vaccination service for government department employees by linking them with local Guild member pharmacies.

“The program capitalises on the network of community pharmacies throughout Queensland, to provide a safe and convenient location for Government employees to receive their vaccination across metropolitan, regional and remote areas of Queensland.

“There are over 360 pharmacies participating in the program – providing ample access for the widespread placement department employees.

“In addition to supporting member’s businesses, this program also provides ongoing benefits for department employees in the areas of wellbeing and health by building relationships with a highly trusted and accessible health professionals,” Mr Logan said.

The Pharmacy Guild of Australia, Queensland Branch has partnered with GuildLink for members to utilise the GuildCare NG platform to book, record and report on vaccinations administered as part of the program.

GuildLink CEO, Ross Gallagher said that GuildCare NG reduces the manual paperwork involved when implementing a program like corporate vaccination, in pharmacy.
