NEW POWERS FOR PHAMACISTS

Can dispence medicne without prescription
NSW pharmacists now have extra powers enabling them to dispense medicines without a prescription and can now stay open 24/7, as NSW fights COVID-19.

Minister for Health and Medical Research Brad Hazzard said a special authority has been g ranted to community pharmacists to assist people who can’t access their GP.
 
“This new authority comes at a crucial time for NSW, when we are looking at keeping our entire medical ecosystem free of red tape,” Mr Hazzard said.
 
“It gives our trusted community pharmacists the ability to dispense when people are notable to contact their GP to arrange a prescription at a time when we want everyone to stay home as much as possible.”
 
Pharmacies are also now able to operate 24 hours a day.  The NSW Government is also addressing the over-supply of prescription and over-the-counter medicines and recently introduced new limits to ensure equitable access.
