Victoria’s Department of Health is referring dozens of doctors to AHPRA each year for failing to check the SafeScript real-time prescription monitoring software, officials have revealed.

SafeScript flags possible signs of doctor-shopping with Victorian prescribers and pharmacists, as part of efforts to curb overdose deaths, and has been mandatory to check since 2020.
