Health Minister to open PSA23

Minister for Health and Aged Care Mark Butler MP will open the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia national conference, PSA23, in Sydney on 28 July.

PSA National President Dr Fei Sim FPS says that there had never been a more important time for the Minister to address pharmacists.

“I am pleased to confirm that Minister Butler will address pharmacists directly as part of PSA23,” says Dr Sim.

“This will be the first time that Minister Butler addresses pharmacists since he announced the introduction of 60-day dispensing in April.

“PSA23 will be an opportunity for pharmacists to hear directly from the Minister for Health and Aged Care, as well as the Assistant Minister for Rural and Regional Health Emma McBride on the significant policy changes impacting our profession.”

PSA23 will see attendance from both sides of politics.

Shadow Minister for Health and Aged Care Senator Anne Ruston will also be addressing attendees on Saturday 29 July.
