The Pharmacy Council of NSW also has a role in the regulation of community pharmacies. The Councils provide an important public safety role and aim to promote good practice in the relevant health profession.

In addition, members should have the ability to apply legislation and demonstrate effective and proactive teamwork.
Applicants will be selected on merit and provide an appropriate range of knowledge, skills and diversity within the Council membership. An information package comprising the selection criteria and the Council Appointment – Expression of Interest form is available on the Health Professional Councils Authority website https://www.hpca.nsw.gov.au/council-membership-11.
