Submission to the COVID-19 Response Committee Legislative Council of South Australia

As a union representing over 20,000 professional employees in a range of professions across the country, including scientists and pharmacists Professionals Australia was invited to provide an oral submission to the COVID 19 Response Committee Legislative Council South Australia.

PA advocated on behalf of highly skilled, experienced, and dedicated scientists and pharmacists and shared their experiences of working in SA Pathology and community pharmacies during the pandemic.

Professionals Australia is indebted to the heroic efforts of all front-line health workers who continue to provide vital health care to the community during the COVID 19 pandemic – many of whom put their health and safety on the line to protect ours. We believe our members in medical science and pharmacy form part of this frontline, helping us to understand the nature of this virus and take action to reduce its spread and impact on our community. .
