The NSW Government will permanently allow pharmacists to diagnose UTIs and prescribe antibiotics despite not seeing the results from its 10-month trial.

From 1 June, all pharmacists who undergo the state’s training program and have a consulting room can provide UTI consultations, says NSW Minister for Health Ryan Park.
