From today, the PSA has relocated to temporary premises to allow redevelopment of the Pharmacy House site in Canberra.
“The existing Pharmacy House, built thanks to funding assistance from PSA members more than 30 years ago, has been a landmark of pharmacist care in Canberra,” says PSA’s CEO Dr Lance Emerson.
“The society has grown over the years to meet the changing needs of the profession, and the existing premises have started to restrict progress.
“Building on this support, members will again be provided the opportunity to contribute to the development of the new landmark building which will be a symbol of excellence in pharmacist care in Australia for the next 50 years.”
The redevelopment of Pharmacy House is a joint venture with a Canberra developer to demolish the existing premises and redevelop it into a pharmacy hub which will house PSA and offer space to other pharmacy bodies.
Dr Emerson says this will be a state-of-the-art, three-level building which will symbolise PSA’s progressive and forward-looking approach, and would unite various pharmacy bodies under the one roof.
“This is an exciting time for PSA and the profession,” Dr Emerson says.
The new temporary street address in Canberra is: Level 1, 25 Geils Court, Deakin ACT 2600,
The current phone numbers, PO Box address and internet details are unchanged.
