Chemo saga flares up

The chemotherapy medicine payment saga could be set to reignite

The Pharmacy Guild of Australia believes the Federal Government’s funding proposals for chemotherapy drug compounding are “unworkable”.

Guild executive director David Quilty said, “It is clear that the proposal to make all EFC (Efficient Funding of Chemotherapy) payments directly to compounders is unworkable.”

“We are respectfully asking for an alternative approach that will ensure the government’s transparency objective is still achieved.”
