The look of Online PBS Authorities System in HPOS is changing

On 30 July 2017 we’ll be making some screen changes to the Online PBS Authorities System in HPOS.

The changes are minor and will have little effect on how you get authority approval for PBS items.

The biggest change is you need to do some things earlier in the process. You need to key in the prescribed quantity, prescribed repeats and daily dose on the item search screen.

Before the change we’ll email current users of the system a copy of the updated user guide through the HPOS mail centre.

The final version of the updated user guide will be on our website shortly after these changes happen.

You can contact us for help using the system.
