SafeScript – real-time prescription monitoring

SafeScript is a clinical decision support system that allows doctors and pharmacists to access an up-to-the-minute medicines supply history of certain high-risk medicines for their patient at the point of consultation.

The SafeScript system is accompanied by a range of initiatives to support and prepare patients and health professionals for the implementation of SafeScript. This will include:

  • A public awareness campaign to inform the general public of SafeScript and to improve the understanding of the risks associated with some prescription medicines
  • Training for prescribers and pharmacists, on how to more safely prescribe and dispense high-risk medications and respond to the needs of patients.

SafeScript Hub

A new 'one-stop' online hub is available for SafeScript. Content for the SafeScript Hub includes information about the SafeScript system, training, technical support and an extensive list of references.

  • Online CPD-accredited training is now available here via the SafeScript Hub.
