With the industry’s ongoing rapid change, driven primarily by regulatory and economic factors, our priority is to protect and preserve your flexibility as a pharmacy owner, allowing you to tailor your care to your community’s needs.

We know that Australians support their local independent pharmacy, but today, they want more convenience and affordability from our pharmacies.

This year, at our first IPA Member Summit, which will bring together pharmacies across our membership brands for the second time, we want to show you how we will use our 1,100-strong membership and its collective scale to meet the health needs of Australians across the country.

Over two full days, at our 2024 Member Summit, we will show you how by unifying as 1,100 pharmacies, we can:

  • Deliver buying power and trading terms that allow you to engage more people in your community
  • Gain more productivity with your team through our technology platforms
  • Drive more customers and patients into your pharmacy through our new IPA national marketing program
  • Deliver the right mix of services to deliver better health outcomes for your community
  • Support you in navigating the new 8CPA and the rollout of the full scope of practice

We know that together we can build great pharmacies, and together we can better support health in your community.

We are together in health. For more information on the Member Summit 2024 please view the brochure below.
