QScript exemptions from 1 July 2024

AMA Queensland members will be relieved to see Queensland Health has taken doctors’ feedback about QScript on board and will be implementing some long overdue changes from 1 July 2024.

The amendments include exemptions for patients in low-risk circumstances including:

  • in hospital settings
  • in aged care facilities
  • prisons
  • end-of-life care situations

More information can be found in Queensland Health’s overview and in updates to be provided on the Department’s QScript landing page and Medicines and Poisons Act ‘Fact sheets and support documents’ page.
