Labor promises early 7CPA negotiations and end to co-payment

A Labor government would start early, “inclusive” negotiations towards the Seventh Community Pharmacy Agreement, leader Bill Shorten and health spokesperson Catherine King have written to the Pharmacy Guild.

In the traditional letter of support for pharmacy, Mr Shorten and Ms King say while interested to see the findings of the current Pharmacy Remuneration and Regulation Review Panel, “this will be just one consideration in the negotiation of the next agreement”.
