Meet the Epic board

We’re governed by the Epic Pharmacy Advisory board, made up of members who bring different epic skills to the team:

  • John Jackson has practised as a pharmacist for over 35 years and has a particular interest in health and pharmacy policy, funding of pharmaceuticals, quality use of medicines, patient safety, standards of practice and governance within the profession
  • Annette Schmiede is a health and aged care expert with a deep understanding of the complex policy and funding issues these areas face 


  • Bruce Annabel is an authority on the commercial, management and strategic planning issues surrounding the business of pharmacy
  • Russell Hill knows the acute care pharmacy industry like the back of his hand, having worked extensively across both Australia and the UK. He’s still at the coalface of the industry; working in WA as our Managing Partner 

The board provides our leaders with guidance and oversees the long-term strategy of the company.
