The Pharmaceutical Society of Australia’s (PSA) Tasmania Branch welcomes the appointment of Jeremy Rockliff MP as Premier of Tasmania and Michael Ferguson MP as the state’s Deputy Premier.


This morning, Jeremy Rockliff MP, previously serving as Tasmania’s Minister for Health, was appointed Premier of Tasmania, replacing Peter Gutwein MP.


PSA Tasmania Branch President, David Peachey, congratulated Premier Rockliff and thanked the outgoing Premier for his service.


“I congratulate the incoming Premier and Deputy Premier on their appointments respectively, and PSA looks forward continuing our positive and collaborative relationship with the Tasmanian Government.


“Premier Rockliff’s experience, particularly in the health portfolio, serving as Deputy Premier, Minister for Health and Minister for Mental Health and Wellbeing, will serve the state well into the future.


“PSA also thanks former Premier, Peter Gutwein, for his support of pharmacists and Tasmania’s healthcare system throughout his tenure.


“His leadership has played a critical role in keeping Tasmanians safe throughout the pandemic, and keeping the COVID-19 infection rate low for such a long period of time.


“We wish him and his family all the best for the future,” Mr Peachey said.
