Pharmacy Guild members will have their 2015-16 Membership renewal rates reduced by 25% as a thank you to all Members for their support during the negotiation of the 6CPA, the Guild has announced in Forefront.
Both the proprietor and the premises components of the Guild annual subscription will be reduced by 25% in the Unity Rebate and this will be reflected in the Guild’s annual membership subscriptions, which are currently being mailed out to members.
Pharmacy Guild National President George Tambassis says the Guild wanted to provide the Unity Rebate due to the massive support from its members on the ground.
“After the huge grass-roots effort visiting, calling and writing to local politicians, the Guild has decided to acknowledge the critical role played by our members which has been absolutely instrumental in the 6CPA outcome,” he says.
“As an organisation, we continue to be strong and in a position to offer genuine value and practical support to our members, not only through the Guild itself but also through our companies, including the Guild Group, Gold Cross and GuildLink.
Tambassis says that by continuing to support the Guild and its companies, its members are helping to ensure they have the very best representation and services for their businesses, staff and patients.
“It is vitally important to have your strong, ongoing and loyal support as we work together to secure the future of the community pharmacy network,” he says.
“There is more work to be done and the Guild will be just as busy and committed over the next 12 months working in the interests of our Members.”
