Queensland now live with digital script capability

Queensland has made the necessary changes to regulations to allow PBS medicines to be dispensed with a digital script as well as paper, with the state joining the other jurisdictions to allow doctors to send a script directly to a pharmacy during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Minister for Health and Ambulance Services Steven Miles said the change will better align Queensland with the special arrangements announced by the federal government allowing the supply of PBS medicines through a digital image.
