Waiver for prescribing extended to 22 March 2021

In April this year the Ministry of Health introduced new rules to make it easier for you to provide electronic prescriptions to support virtual care during the COVID-19 epidemic.

The temporary waiver (for community and hospital prescribers that do not use a NZePS integrated system) allows prescriptions not signed personally to be recognised as legal prescriptions if they meet certain conditions.

This waiver has been extended until 22 March 2021.
