Electronic prescribing will improve medication safety and provide new options and convenience of patients and their medicine supply. This initiative is a key priority within the National Digital Health Strategy.
Electronic prescriptions are an alternative to paper prescriptions which will allow people convenient access to their medications. Electronic prescriptions are optional, and patients will have the choice of receiving either an electronic or paper prescription from their prescriber (but not both). Electronic prescribing will continue to support a patient’s right to choose their prescriber and pharmacy to supply their medicines.
The Guild has a dedicated Members-Only Exclusive resource page available which is updated regularly.
