GPs can expect letters imploring them not to write 60-day scripts to protect patients’ “financial best interest” and to preserve access to Webster packs and blood pressure tests in pharmacies.

The Community and Pharmacy Support Group (CAPS) — which has been posting scripts to Facebook labelled “Rort Alert” — is finalising the wording of a mass letter send-out to GP practices on behalf of its members.
