SafeScript NSW

SafeScript NSW is a computer software system. Doctors, nurses, dentists, and pharmacists may use the system to access information about your prescription history for certain high‑risk medicines. Health professionals use the information to help keep you safe when taking your medicines.

Medicines List

The Medicines List has some of the most important things you need to know about your medicine, such as what it is for, how much to use, and when to use it. You can also use the list to track your medicines online or on your iPhone.

Travelling with Medicine

Taking medicines or medical devices overseas can cause stress for travellers, especially those with pre-existing health conditions and increased health concerns. There are no restrictions on taking medicines for personal use out of Australia, but there are restrictions on taking some medicines into certain countries.

Complementary and Alternative Medicines (CAM)

Information on complementary therapy, also know as alternative therapy, alternative medicine, holistic therapy and traditional medicine, can be found on the Better Health Channel website.

Medicines and Hospital Visits

The Society of Hospital Pharmacists of Australia provides a pamphlet on what you need to know about your medicines when you go to hospital.

Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are an essential part of the development of new interventions and tests that may improve your health care, alleviate the symptoms of your disease or condition, or improve the health care of others. The National and Medical Research Council provides information for consumers on Australian Clinical Trials.
