The Australian Government has confirmed that the Community Pharmacy in Health Care Homes Trial Program will end on 30 June 2021 in line with the ending of the broader Health Care Homes Trial.

The Community Pharmacy in Health Care Homes Trial Program was funded as part of the Sixth Community Pharmacy Agreement (6CPA) to support the incorporation of medication management planning and programs within Health Care Homes. Patients have benefited from patient-centred, coordinated medication management services delivered by their community pharmacy of choice in conjunction with their Health Care Home.

Thank you to all community pharmacies that participated in this significant trial. After the trial ends on 30 June 2021, the trial outcomes will be evaluated and a final report will be published on the Australian Government Department of Health’s website.

If your pharmacy has registered or provided services for this trial you will receive email correspondence from the Pharmacy Guild advising you of next steps for your pharmacy.

Please note: All trial services must be completed in GuildCare software by 30 June 2021 in order to be paid. For help with recording your Health Care Homes services, please call GuildLink on 1300 647 492 or email
