Online authority script approvals on way

GPs could soon be able to go online for approval to prescribe PBS authority script drugs.

This would cover most general authority items and possibly dose adjustments and repeats.

Under the revamp, the authority approval processes for complex and expensive medications would still need doctors to pick up the telephone.
