GIVE YOUR PHARMACY THE FACTOR
Health Destination is developed by the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA).
No other organisation has the level of experience and expertise that PSA does in delivering in-pharmacy support and high-quality pharmacy practice training, resources and tools. Our past experience in delivering change programs, onsite support, and high-quality practice support resources and training means we are the experts in pharmacy practice.

The Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA) has come together with a broad group of industry-leading organisations to support the Health Destination initiative.
These partners support improved outcomes for consumers and sustainability of the pharmacy sector.
Representatives of the partner companies are members of an Advisory Group, providing advice on the national scale-up of Health Destination Pharmacy.
This union is unprecedented and reflects the confidence the industry has in the program and its outcomes.
Each partner has invested in the whole-of-industry program according to the following Terms of Agreement:
The parties acknowledge that the Health Destination Pharmacy partnership has been negotiated in an arms-length transaction and is not provided in a manner or on conditions that would interfere with or compromise the independence or integrity of a healthcare professional’s prescribing or dispensing practices. Collaboration will allow us to jointly achieve the goal of progressing a scaleable, effective change platform to support a flexible and sustainable community pharmacy network.
