NSW Hepatitis C Remote Prescribing Program

The NSW Hepatitis C Remote Prescribing Program was established in November 2020 to facilitate linkages between nurses who perform the patient assessment and medical practitioners/nurse practitioners who initiate hepatitis C treatment. The program aims to increase access to hepatitis C treatment in NSW in regional areas and other settings where treatment may be limited.

Further information about the program is available in the overview HERE.
