The Pharmacists’ Support Service is a charity and has been granted deductible gift recipient status (DGR) and taxation concessions by the ATO. We welcome donations from the broader pharmacy profession.
Our main expenses are volunteer training, telephone expenses, staff (part-time), insurance and administration. As the service is provided by volunteers we have minimal infrastructure.
PSS has expanded from its Victorian base to all states and territories of Australia and is now a truly national service which provides support to pharmacists and pharmacy students and interns throughout Australia. PSS now requires adequate ongoing funding from the profession to support the continuing work of the service.
PSS currently receives funding from the following pharmacy organisations:
Australian Friendly Societies Pharmacies Association (AFSPA)
Pharmaceutical Defence Limited (PDL)
Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA)
Pharmaceutical Society of Victoria Ltd (PSV Ltd)
Professional Pharmacists Australia (PPA)
Society of Hospital Pharmacists of Australia (SHPA)
The Pharmacy Guild of Australia (PGA)
We would like to express appreciation to our major donors who have supported our expansion:
Australian Pharmaceutical Industries
NAPSA - National Australian Pharmacy Students' Association
Sanofi - supported by an unrestricted grant from Sanofi
Pharmaceutical Society of Western Australia
Pharmacy Guild of Australia (NSW Branch)
UFS Dispensaries Ltd
Many individual pharmacists have also contributed tax deductible donations to support the work of PSS. This is a further example of pharmacists supporting pharmacists and we thank them for supporting their professional colleagues in this way.
