Access to Medicine Without a Prescription

Access to Medicine Without a Prescription

Posted on: 01 April 2020

We are taking action to ensure people who need an emergency supply of essential medicines can get them without a prescription.

Understandably, there is a lot of anxiety in the community and that’s why we’re putting practical measures in place to protect and support South Australians.

Pharmacists will work to strict guidelines to ensure this temporary measure isn’t abused.

If patients are in urgent need and have not been able to receive their usual prescription, they can contact their pharmacist to discuss their options to get their essential medicines without a prescription.
