We are now able to issue your prescriptions electronically – these are known as e-prescriptions. E-prescriptions can be sent via SMS or email. You will receive a link to your e-prescription, with a QR code (like a bar code) which can be scanned at the pharmacy to redeem your prescription.

All medications can be issued electronically. If required, you can also forward on your SMS or link to a carer or family member to collect your prescription on your behalf.

Please talk to your doctor if you would like to receive your next prescription electronically.

You can visit digitalhealth.gov.au to find out more about e-prescriptions.
