Today ACOSS, CHF, and Choice have launched a major campaign to call on consumers, Government and members of a future Government to ‘Stand up for Cheaper Medicines’.
They say that Australian families are now being forced to pay some of the highest prices for medicines in the world – up to ten times the British price for the same prescription medicine.
CHF, ACOSS and Choice are calling on consumers and all political parties to support the current Price Disclosure policy that sees savings on medicine price reductions passed on to consumers and taxpayers – rather than to pharmacy owners and not to support the union representing pharmacy owners, The Pharmacy Guild in calling for a $150 million taxpayer compensation scheme to pharmacy owners.
