GPs free to write scripts for new hep C drugs

No accreditation will be required for GPs to prescribe four new PBS-listed hepatitis C drugs, but educational support will be available, it has been revealed.

Just three weeks before the drugs become available on the PBS, the Gastroenterological Society of Australia (GESA) has confirmed that GPs will not have to undergo any specific training to write scripts for the drugs.
