Wonderful Team of Dedicated Pharmacists

About Us

Ward MM was founded by Clinical Pharmacist, Sue Ward, in 1997 as a medication review business servicing the aged care sector in Victoria. Today Ward MM is one of the largest providers of specialist clinical pharmacy services to aged care in Australia. Our highly qualified team care for over 35,000 (and growing!) elderly Australians, across 370 aged care homes. We have RMMR/QUM contracts with BUPA, Japara, Estia, Allity and Bolton Clarke amongst many others.

Being the ‘guardians’ of safe and appropriate use of medications in the aged care facilities and homes we visit; providing a range of collaborative services including: education sessions, medication audits, clinical data insights and leading MAC meetings is what we do best. With new funding and much needed commitment from the Government to do more to support the elderly living in residential aged care homes, we anticipate the need for more talented Clinical Pharmacists to join our existing team of 30 as we provide more integrated services.

We’re a national operation, with teams established in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria (covering Tasmania) and South Australia.

We currently have an open vacancy for:
