Welcome to the Pharmacy Council of New South Wales
Make a complaint

How can we help?

Our Council is made up of ten members, including practising pharmacists, a legal member and community representatives.

We manage complaints about the clinical care and treatment, professional behaviour or health of registered pharmacists and pharmacy students in NSW.

We manage complaints about the conduct, performance and health of registered health practitioners and students in NSW. We also manage the regulation of pharmacy businesses in NSW.

Complaints are concerns about the care, treatment or behaviour of a registered health practitioner.

We approve pharmacy premises in NSW and maintain a Register of Pharmacies and pecuniary interest holders of NSW pharmacies.
