Patient consent forms

Pharmacists are required to sight the completed consent form to confirm that patients have given consent to have their co-payment paid by NSW Health.

Prescriptions filled at NSW public hospital pharmacies and NSW community pharmacies must be accompanied by the 3 Year Patient Consent Form. Existing 12 Month Patient Consent Forms remain valid and can be accepted until the renewal period on the form expires.

When prescriptions for s100 injectable and infusible chemotherapy medicines are filled through pharmacies used by NSW public hospital oncology services, a local pharmacy consent form must be signed by the patient. The 3 Year Patient Consent Form is not required.

Refer to Patients for consent information.

More information and resources, including guides and frequently asked questions can be found on Pharmacy Guild of Australia (NSW Branch).

Public hospital pharmacists
