We urgently need your help to support Pharmacies to operate with enough Locum Pharmacists until the Covid-19 crisis is over.
As the Covid-19 Pandemic continues to grow in scale, the pressure on Pharmacies and Pharmacist staff has significantly increased.
As an industry, our incredible Pharmacists have had to deal with the increased workload from the initial panic buying of medicines and that pressure has not significantly abated as each day brings new challenges.
With the recent announcement that NSW Pharmacies can now operate 24/7, there will be a growing need for more flexible rosters, and where possible, split shifts will be the preference to minimise the risk of infection between team members.
As Australia’s largest and longest running Pharmacy Recruitment Agency we are preparing ourselves to play our part in keeping as many Pharmacies as possible open for Australians when a Covid-19 outbreak inevitably occurs within a Pharmacy.
But it’s not just the virus itself, we are also concerned about the health and well-being of Pharmacists generally from the stress and extra hours they are all doing.
We know you all have families and friends and everyone has been affected by the Covid-19 Pandemic and we hope they are safe and healthy. We know they are your priority as will be your employer, but we feel compelled to let you know that if you want to help other Pharmacies and Australians generally, we can assist you.
At this critical point in fighting the virus we are asking you to contact us now, on 1800 429 829, or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org and provide us with any availability you can. Don’t worry if it’s only a day a week, it will make a difference!
Our experienced team of Heidi Dariz, Debbie Capuano, Leanne Virtue, Christina Gardner, Nivi Kent, Belinda Jeffries, David Shaw and Eryn Chivers are working from home offices so that we can ensure our service remains at the highest levels irrespective of any further travel or working restrictions.
Thank you for taking the time to read this important announcement.
