New Pharma honours Liauw legacy

IN a fitting tribute to the late Judy Liauw, her daughter, pharmacist Shu Fen Liauw, and Amanda Galbraith, the chair of the Pharmacy Guild of Australia’s Women and Young Pharmacists’ Committee, officially launched New Pharma at the Pharmacy Women’s Congress Dinner in Cairns last Saturday night. In her position as the former chair of the Women and Young Pharmacists Committee and Guild National Councillor Judy was the driving force behind the development of the initiative. “Judy’s vision was to provide young pharmacists considering ownership with access to the right information in a simple and logical manner,” a statement from the Pharmacy Guild of Australia said. “The Guild had already developed the Buying and Selling a Pharmacy Guide – 7 steps to a highly effective sale or purchase, but Judy wanted to go one step further. She wanted to provide the answers to the many questions about what to do and how to do it, as she knew young pharmacists were asking about how to become a pharmacy owner.” New Pharma aids potential pharmacy buyers with advice on establishing and running a viable pharmacy business, including identifying the right pharmacy; assessing your capabilities needed for pharmacy ownership; evaluating the financial and non-financial considerations; negotiating; working through the buying process; transition of ownership and establishing the business.
