With the Budget 2017-18 to be released on Tuesday night, all eyes in the pharmacy sector are on the Health Minister…
Minister Greg Hunt has signalled some big changes for pharmacy in the upcoming announcement, although whether they are positive or negative for the sector is yet to be revealed.
Recent issues the Minister has broached include the risk share reimbursement, funding for a nationwide real-time recording system, and the release of promised 6CPA funding for community pharmacy programs to boost pharmacist services including HMRs, DAAs, MedsChecks, rural support programs, e-health and more.
