The Pharmacy Guild of Australia is a national employers’ organisation registered under the federal Fair Work Act 2009, with over 90 years of experience in representing and promoting the value of community pharmacy in the Australian health care system. Community pharmacies are a vital part of our national health system with the potential to make an even bigger contribution to the health of all Australians.

The Pharmacy Guild of Australia was established in 1928 as the Federated Pharmaceutical Services Guild of Australia and was registered under the Federal Industrial Relations Act as an employers’ organisation for the owners of community pharmacies. It was set up to serve the interests of its members. More than 90 years later, it continues to serve its members and the Australian public who value their local pharmacy.
