The Minister for Health - Tanya Plibersek

The Callaghan Campus of the University of Newcastle has 24,652 students (980 of whom live on campus), 2,723 permanent staff and 2,478 part time staff. There are 8 doctors working in the University Health Service.

However, due to a peculiarity in the pharmacy approval rules it does not have a pharmacy on-campus to serve the needs of the students and staff.

In order to get a pharmacy on campus we must convince the Minister for Health that approving a pharmacy is in the public interest and that the university community is being left without reasonable access to Pharmaceutical Benefits and get her to exercise the Discretionary Power of approval.

Please sign the petition to show the minister your support!

We support the establishment of a pharmacy at the Callaghan campus of the University of Newcastle, that can dispense Pharmaceutical Benefits (government subsidised prescriptions), to serve the university community.
