From 30 March 2020, ownership application lodgement dates no longer apply. Complete and compliant applications will not need to go to a formal Council meeting which means that the majority of applications will be approved within 10 business days. An application that is incomplete or non-compliant will take longer to assess and may need to be referred to a Council meeting for consideration. To avoid delay, applicants should ensure their application is complete and compliant and that all required documentation is provided in the correct format at the time of lodgement. Updated forms are available on the Council’s website. Please refer to The Guide, also available on the website, for help to complete the forms and calculate the fee payable.
At the present time we are unable to receive physical mail. From 30 March 2020 until further notice, all applications must be submitted electronically. Completed application forms should be submitted by email to HPCA-PharmacyCouncil@health.nsw.gov.au. Once in receipt of your form, you will be provided with a link to a secure portal which you may use to lodge documents supporting your application. To assist us to identify each document, we request that you title each attachment; for example: lease, partnership agreement.
