Phar­ma­cists’ COVID re­turn

Pharmacy Daily - - News -

CLOSE to 2,000 pre­vi­ously reg­is­tered phar­ma­cists have re­joined the pro­fes­sion to sup­port Aus­tralia’s COVID re­sponse.

Since the in­tro­duc­tion of the pan­demic sub-reg­is­ter 1,952 phar­ma­cists have been added to the list of those el­i­gi­ble to par­tic­i­pate in the phar­macy work­force, the Phar­macy Board of Aus­tralia re­vealed in its lat­est up­date.

The short-term sub-reg­is­ter was launched on 06 Apr and op­er­ates on an opt-out ba­sis, with el­i­gi­ble prac­ti­tion­ers added au­to­mat­i­cally.

Phar­ma­cists who choose to stay on the sub-reg­is­ter must com­ply with the Board’s Code of Con­duct and meet pro­fes­sional in­dem­nity in­sur­ance re­quire­ments.

Those en­rolled on the sub­reg­is­ter will be re­moved af­ter 12 months.
