Pharmacy baby weighing and BP checks in jeopardy with 60-day dispensing, warns guild  

The guild's message to patients, printed across the back of dispensed scripts, is changing.

Patients filling scripts will be handed new Pharmacy Guild of Australia graphics warning that pharmacists can no longer offer free delivery or advice as part of the guild’s renewed campaign against 60-day dispensing. 

The Federal Government is preparing to let GPs write double-length scripts for around 100 PBS items from September and then expanding the list with hundreds more items before the end of 2024.
