NSW opposition pledges to follow Victoria's SafeScript RTPM system

The NSW Labor opposition has promised to spend $30 million to build a real-time prescription monitoring system patterned on Victoria's SafeScript as part of its campaign ahead of the 2019 election.

The NSW government is currently waiting for a review to be completed by Deloitte into the capabilities of the national Electronic Recording and Reporting of Controlled Drugs (ERRCD) system, which has been available for use since 2012 but has not been fully implemented anywhere in Australia.
