Welcome to Pharm-A-Temp

Pharm-A-Temp commenced operations in 1997 after extensive Pharmacy Guild endorsed research illustrated the need for quality pharmacists all over Victoria in both relieving and permanent capacities.

We were the first independent fee-for-service locum agency in Victoria and, since that time, our organization has built a reputation based on a friendly, efficient and reliable service.

We understand that locum pharmacists must have the communication, pharmacy and people skills to preserve the integrity of your business…

We understand that locum pharmacists must have the communication, pharmacy and people skills to preserve the integrity of your pharmacy business while you take a well deserved break or fill an emergency.

Day to Day Service

For Pharmacy Employers

We realise how frustrating platform based call centres are so a real person always answers the phone.

Communication is our focus and we will continually update you on the progress of your request.

We liaise between you and the pharmacist to make sure everyone has all the necessary details for every placement.

Placement invoice will be sent at the end of each month. Giving you 14 days to make your payment.

We would really appreciate you booking early, particularly when dates are centred around school holidays.
