Last Australian state government signs up for pharmacist UTI prescribing

The SA Government decision follows a parliamentary committee recommendation.
MP Jayne Stinson.

The South Australian government will let pharmacists diagnose and prescribe antibiotics for UTIs from March next year and renew contraceptive scripts from May. 

The move follows a state parliamentary inquiry, led by government MP Jayne Stinson, that recommended letting pharmacists prescribe for certain conditions without a trial or pilot program.
