PHARMAC - Diabetes Nurse Prescriber Roll Out

Diabetes Nurse Prescriber roll out:

PHARMAC is seeking feedback on a proposal to allow all Diabetes Nurse Prescribers to have their prescriptions subsidised. Currently PHARMAC subsidises prescriptions written by only 27 named Diabetes Nurse Prescribers who participated in the pilot Diabetes Nurse demonstration sites.

In summary, this proposal would result in all Diabetes Nurse Prescribers having their prescriptions subsidised. This is the result of a nationwide rollout of the Diabetes Nurse Prescribers demonstration sites.

Details of the proposal and background information can be found on the website listed above.

Feedback Due: Please note feedback is due with PHARMAC on April 7 so please forward your feedback to Marilyn Head as soon as possible in order for us to be able to make an informed submission. Send feedback to Senior Policy Analyst, Marilyn Head, or ph 04 494 6372
