Hon Peter Dutton MP, Leader of the Opposition presenting at APP2024

The Pharmacy Guild of Australia, National President Professor Trent Twomey is pleased to announce that the Hon. Peter Dutton MP, Leader of the Opposition will present at the Australian Pharmacy Professional Conference and Trade Exhibition (APP2024) on Friday 15 March.
Mr Dutton will be addressing APP delegates in a keynote session on the Friday morning, following the ever-popular State of the Industry Panel Session.
“We are delighted Mr Dutton is joining us at the 2024 APP Conference on the Gold Coast,” Professor Twomey said.
“As the largest pharmacy and trade conference in the southern hemisphere, I can think of no better event for Mr Dutton to show his support for community pharmacy.”
“A lot has happened recently in community pharmacy and APP is an important opportunity for public leaders to interact with pharmacists on behalf of our patients.”
Mr Dutton is a long-time supporter of community pharmacy saying recently, “Each time we turn to our community pharmacy for help, our community pharmacists never turn their back.”
Mr Dutton’s colleague, Senator the Hon. Anne Ruston, Shadow Minister for Health and Aged Care and Shadow Minister for Sport, will also be presenting at APP on Thursday 14 March.
“Senator Ruston has been a vocal supporter of community pharmacy over the last year as it has faced the impact of 60-day dispensing,” Professor Twomey said.
“On the 60-day dispensing issues Senator Ruston is on the record stating, ‘The Opposition has been calling on the Government to provide a guarantee that this measure will not harm the viability of community pharmacies or the patients they care for’.”
“Invitations have also been extended to the Prime Minister and the Health Minister and we’d be delighted to host them,” Professor Twomey said.
