Get medication without a paper prescription
Healthcare professionals will soon be able to share your prescription with you or your pharmacist via SMS or email, if you want them to. You will still be able to get your usual medicines at PBS prices even if you cannot get a new prescription from your doctor. Discuss how to get an electronic prescription with your healthcare professional in your telehealth appointment.
