Poll: is the profession coming together? : 26/06/2013 :

In his AusPharm feature yesterday John Bronger commented that incoming Guild President George Tambassis and PSA President Grant Kardachi 'appear to have the right attitude to bring increased collaboration between the Guild and the PSA'.

There have been other instances recently of conciliatory noises being made by both PSA and the Guild and even employee pharmacist union PPA seems to have backed away from its usual combative approach to things.

Is all this a genuine sign that the profession might just be starting to pull together? What do you think? Please let us know by voting in this week's AusPharm poll.
