This section contains resources that prescribers and pharmacists can provide to their patients about SafeScript NSW and monitored medicines.
Resources to help raise awareness about SafeScript NSW
As SafeScript NSW is a new system, patients may ask their GP, other medical specialist or pharmacist about it.
To support health practitioners with these conversations and help raise awareness about SafeScript NSW, we have developed a video and series of posters to display in practices, health services and pharmacies. The posters can also be printed out in A4 size and used as flyers to provide to patients.
