Pharmacy House – Building the future of pharmacyBack to previous page
php echo wp_list_categories(); ?>
The start of construction for PSA’s new, state-of-the-art building to be a modern pharmacy hub was officially launched in Canberra by Federal Assistant Health Minister Dr David Gillespie in May 2017.
The purpose-built Pharmacy House, located in Deakin and close to Parliament House, Federal Government departments and other national medical organisations, will empower PSA to pursue its vision of improving the health of Australians through excellence in pharmacist care.
Pharmacy House – which is set to become a local landmark – will be designed to ensure PSA continues to provide the best member and advocacy services for pharmacists across Australia.
The original Pharmacy House was built in 1984 thanks to the generosity of PSA members, who raised about $250,000 towards its construction. The old building was removed to make way for the new one, which will meet pharmacists’ needs as the profession grows and PSA’s influence in the health sector expands.
We invite you to become a part of the new Pharmacy House by donating to the Pharmacy House Building Fund.
PSA is investing in a new building at the original premises of Pharmacy House in Deakin, Canberra, to create a modern hub for pharmacy in Australia.
The new Pharmacy House will incorporate a members’ lounge, multi-functional boardroom and a display of historical pharmacy artefacts donated to PSA over many years. The display will tell a special story of pharmacists in Australia and will be a showpiece of the new Pharmacy House.
A building for PSA members
The new Pharmacy House will be a unique concept in incorporating members’ needs into a modern building specifically designed to ensure PSA continues to provide the best possible services for all our members, regardless of where they are located. It will also be a building designed for members and for use by members. Importantly, the name Pharmacy House will be retained and the location will be on the site of the old Pharmacy House.
A special members’ area will be incorporated into the building, highlighting that this is a building owned by the membership of PSA, and for the membership of PSA. This area, which PSA members can use while in Canberra, will provide a range of facilities including a lounge area, tea/coffee-making facilities, a library and other resources. It will be a working area for PSA members who need a space to catch up on business or just to relax for a while between meetings.
Pharmacy House is more than just a building; it’s part of our drive into the future.
