Community Pharmacy Election Pledges

We're here to keep you informed about something crucial - the upcoming election and its potential impact on community pharmacy. 

We've got the inside scoop on where the major political parties stand when it comes to essential pharmacy issues.

 Most parties are fully committed to protecting fees-free prescriptions for all Kiwis. However, there are a couple of parties that seem to lean towards using pharmacists as tax collectors & taxing people when they are sick 

 When it comes to prioritising patients over profits by keeping safeguards against non-pharmacist ownership of community pharmacies, some parties have given a resounding "Yes," while others have left us hanging with "Did not respond" or "Unclear." 

Your voice is incredibly important in this process! Let's keep the conversation going and ensure we make informed choices in the upcoming election! 

Stay tuned for more updates.
