As bushfires continue to ravage our nation, our thoughts are with the individuals and communities who have been displaced or impacted. Thank you to all our brave firefighters, police, emergency services personnel and volunteers who are providing disaster relief and recovery assistance in very difficult circumstances.
As a pharmaceutical wholesaler, Sigma Healthcare’s main priority during times of emergency is to deliver medicines and other pharmaceutical supplies to those communities who require them. We have been working closely with the Police, Emergency Services, Department of Health and Human Services, the Military, Pharmacy Guild of Australia and transport partners to ensure pharmaceutical supplies are getting through to those isolated by road closures, as well as those engulfed by smoke and fire. We are humbled, grateful and proud of the efforts of all those involved in coordinating and delivering supplies to those in need.
We are currently working through how we can provide ongoing support for our communities during and following this incredibly difficult time.
