Andy Tam Nguyen started this petition to The Hon Greg Hunt MP

Flagstone is a vibrant growing community which has been under-serviced in many areas, especially when it comes to community health services.  With the massive growth in recent years, especially with the opening of the Flagstone Coles Shopping Village, there is a need for the community to be able to access PBS medications locally and not having to travel to neighbouring suburbs which is at least 7km away. 

The need for a local PBS Pharmacy in Flagstone is even more critical with the current COVID-19 Pandemic affecting the nation and together with the Governments recommendations and restrictions against unnecessary public travel.

Watsons Chemists Flagstone opens 7-days a week and has been servicing the community since 21st March 2020, offering a range of health services as well as providing a daily delivery services to the community. However there are limitations to providing PBS medications to the community as it is currently awaiting its PBS application to be approved which may take some months.

We call on The Hon. Greg Hunt MP, Health Minister to use his discretionary powers to approve Watsons Chemists Flagstone as a PBS Pharmacy so that it can better serve the Flagstone and surrounding community, especially in this critical COVID-19 Pandemic times.
