Join the Guild

"It is reassuring to know that even as one individual pharmacy among many members, I can contact the Guild and know they have my interests at heart."
– Sean Shivnan | Sean Shivnan Pharmacy

“I value the Guild’s leadership in the new contract where pharmacy has now been recognised for our patient-focused services as well as our traditional medicine services”
– Des Bailey | Selwyn Village Pharmacy

“I have stayed a member of the Pharmacy Guild through “thick and thin” because I believe we pharmacists need one strong, unified voice when we deal with Government bodies such as the DHBs and PHARMAC”
– Dave Ross | Unichem Motueka Pharmacy and Golden Bay Pharmacy
