Unable to use QScript

If you are a relevant practitioner and are unable to check QScript (e.g. internet issues):

  • make a clinical judgement about appropriate treatment based on the information available to you
  • document that you were unable to access QScript
  • document the reason why.

The decision on whether to prescribe or supply a monitored medicine for a patient remains with you (as the relevant practitioner) at all times, regardless of whether you have been able to access QScript.
