QUOTES ATTRIBUTABLE TO PHARMACEUTICAL SOCIETY OF AUSTRALIA, WA PRESIDENT LUSI SHEEHAN

I am saddened to hear of the retirement of West Australia Premier Mark McGowan this week.

Premier McGowan has supported pharmacists and the health care system through some of the most difficult challenges, including the COVID-19 pandemic. We sincerely thank him for his unwavering support and leadership during this time.

Under Premier McGowan’s leadership there has been strong investment into the health sector, including in regional health and mental health services, ensuring that services are accessible and available to all West Australians who need them.

PSA is proud to have supported the McGowan Government’s free influenza vaccine programs in 2022 and 2023 that have supported vaccine coverage across Western Australia.

McGowan’s commitment to improving the health and wellbeing of our state has undoubtedly improved the lives of all West Australians.

On behalf of pharmacists across Western Australia, I thank Premier McGowan for his leadership, and wish him the best for what comes next.

I look forward to continuing to work constructively with the Government and the next Premier to support the health of all West Australians.

 

ENDS

As Myeloma Awareness Month launches today, Leukaemia Foundation CEO Chris Tanti said while survival rates for some blood cancers are improving, those diagnosed with myeloma still face a 50/50 chance of survival. “As many as 4 in 5 Australians are not confident in recognising the main symptoms of a blood cancer, like myeloma, leaving them at risk of…
