SA Pharmacy Aboriginal artwork, by Jordan Lovegrove, Ngarrindjeri Man, depicts SA Pharmacy’s relationship with South Australian Hospitals, the many Out-of-Hospital services provided, and our commitment to closing the gap. SA Pharmacy is represented by the large central meeting place, and the 16 South Australian metropolitan and rural public hospitals by the smaller meeting places. The provision of pharmacy services to these hospitals is shown by the pathways leading between them.
SA Pharmacy is committed to Closing the Gap on health outcomes for Aboriginal people and helps Aboriginal people with the cost of medicines when being discharged from hospital or attending an outpatient clinic at SA public hospitals through the SA Health Closing the Gap Medicines Access Program.
In 2021, SA Pharmacy won the SA Health Award – Excellence and Innovation in Aboriginal Health for the SA Health Closing the Gap Medicines Access Program.
See Closing the Gap Medicines Access Program for more information.
SA Pharmacy acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea, waters and community. We recognise the history of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ vast knowledge in native plants and their uses, and that Culture and Country provide medicines and healing. They were our first pharmacists. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging, and extend that respect to all Aboriginal people today.
