Bankwest is proud to partner with the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) to deliver the UTS Community Pharmacy Barometer. This is the only comprehensive research tool available to all the stakeholders in the Australian pharmacy industry designed to track the confidence, perceptions and opinions of community pharmacy owners, managers and employee pharmacists.

The 2015 report is the fifth annual Barometer. It identifies an improvement in sentiment from 2014 with confidence and security responses showing increases. This change in sentiment may be attributed to the implementation of the 6th Community Pharmacy Agreement – which is the in-depth focus area of this report.
