The Pharmacy Board has paid tribute to four inaugural members who completed their terms of appointment on 30 August 2015, including Stephen Marty, outgoing Chair.
The Board recognised the past contributions of Marty, Ian Huett, Gerard McInerney and John Finlay to the Board and the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme during their two terms as members of the Board.
In particular, members expressed their appreciation of Marty’s significant contribution to the Board and the National Scheme and wished him well in his retirement.

- Joy Hewitt (practitioner member from Victoria);
- Mark Kirschbaum (practitioner member from Tasmania);
