Shadow Health Minister Chris Bowen will address the Pharmacy Guild of Australia’s Annual Parliamentary Dinner in September
The Pharmacy Guild is pleased to confirm that Mr Bowen has accepted the Guild’s invitation to attend and speak at the dinner on September 10 in the Great Hall of Parliament House, Canberra.
The acting National President of the Guild, Trent Twomey, said the Guild was pleased that Mr Bowen would provide the Opposition’s perspective on community pharmacy.
“Community pharmacies play an important role in Australia’s health system, and with a new Community Pharmacy Agreement scheduled to be in place by mid-2020, it’s a good time for the Guild and our members to hear the views and priorities of the Federal Opposition,” he said.
The Minister for Health, Greg Hunt, has already confirmed that he will attend and speak at the dinner.
The Guild’s Annual Parliamentary Dinner is attended by politicians from across the political spectrum, as well as pharmacy industry representatives and other health and community service leaders.
