About Us
Join Professional Pharmacists Australia us to help make a better future for community pharmacists
Employee pharmacists are regularly rated by the community as one of the most trusted health professionals in Australia. Unfortunately, the wages and conditions of this sector do not reflect their important role in our health care system.

PPA is working hard to reverse this. In the past year we have secured better pay rates for community pharmacists, and we are now working hard to lift the graduate wage.

There are more than 20,000 community pharmacists working in Australia, making it the third largest health care professional groups. By working together we have a greater potential to influence and shape the future of community pharmacy. But to do this, we need your voice to join with ours.

Join Now to be part of a team that is committed to making the pharmacy profession stronger, better and more secure for its workers.
