Another state on verge of pharmacist UTI prescribing

A parliamentary committee said SA should replicate Queensland's approach.

The SA Government should let pharmacists prescribe antibiotics for UTIs “as soon as possible” without a trial or pilot program, a parliamentary committee has declared.

The committee, led by Labor MP Jayne Stinson, also called on the government to “consider” Queensland’s expanded pharmacy prescribing pilot — which will let pharmacists across the state treat 17 conditions — “and the appropriateness of implementation in SA”.
