SafeScript NSW is being rolled out – find out when it is available in your area
10 January 2022
SafeScript NSW provides prescribers and pharmacists with real-time information about a patient’s prescribing and dispensing history for certain high-risk medicines, known as monitored medicines. This information helps to improve clinical decision making and keep patients safe.
SafeScript NSW’s phased statewide rollout has begun based on Primary Health Network (PHN) area. Prescribers and pharmacists in the Hunter New England and Central Coast PHN were the first to have access from October 2021. For health practitioners in this area who have not yet registered, you can do so by accessing the registration link sent to you by email (sent to the address you have recorded with Ahpra).
Health practitioners using SafeScript NSW have found it to be an easy-to-use, helpful clinical tool.
“It is integrated really well and is easy to use. I have a lot more insight and information about what is going on with patients now.” General Practitioner.
“It’s an essential tool for pharmacists to dispense medications safely.” Pharmacist.
Prescribers and pharmacists in other parts of NSW will have access to SafeScript NSW from:
- March 2022: North Coast, Northern Sydney and Nepean Blue Mountains.
- May 2022: Western Sydney, Central and Eastern Sydney, South Western Sydney, South Eastern NSW, Western NSW and Murrumbidgee.
A registration invitation email will be sent to eligible health practitioners when the system becomes available in their area.
In the meantime, complete a series of CPD eLearning modules (NPS MedicineWise sign-in required) and learn about the support available, including a dedicated 24/7 clinical advice line, technical support and enhancements to local HealthPathways.
