An ACT Government delegation is popping across the ditch to visit Wellington and Auckland this week with a focus on re-establishing aviation routes between Canberra and New Zealand. Another priority of the trip will include a discussion with the Mayor of Wellington on the upcoming fifth anniversary of Canberra’s Sister City Agreement with the New Zealand capital. Before COVID-19 hit, the ACT Government had been working to re-establish a direct air route between Canberra and New Zealand.

New RTPM system for ACT

A new real-time prescription monitoring (RTPM) system will be rolled out in the ACT next year. ACT Health Minister Rachel Stephen-Smith this week announced ‘Canberra Script’ would replace the Gateway in the ACT current prescription monitoring system implemented in 2019, with select pilot sites to be given access later this year. RTPM provides information to doctors and pharmacists about a patient’s history and use of controlled medicines. It is designed

to identify patients exhibiting drug seeking behaviour or who are ‘doctor shopping’. Canberra Script is the ACT’s version of the national RTPM system, where each state and territory will implement their own system compatible with the national database. The use of the system will initially be voluntary for practitioners, with the ACT Government to evaluate whether to mandate its use after the rollout.
