The Indigenous Health Services Pharmacy Support (IHSPS) Program is funded under the Seventh Community Pharmacy Agreement (7CPA) to support quality use of medicines (QUM) services and aims to reduce adverse events and associated hospital admissions or medical presentations.

From 1 July 2021, eligible Indigenous Health Services (IHSs) will be able to register for the Program to access funding to provide QUM support to their community.

More information specific for IHSs and their nominated Service Providers (where applicable) regarding the requirements of the new Program can be found on the IHSPS website available here.

In line with this change, the QUMAX and S100 Pharmacy Support Allowance Programs will cease. All outstanding documentation must be submitted by the due dates outlined in the respective Program Rules or QUMAX Subcontract.
