SA budget funds real-time prescription monitoring, chemo prescribing systems

The South Australian Liberal government's first budget has come through with money to support an election promise to establish real-time prescription monitoring in the state, with $7.5 million allocated over three years in yesterday's state budget.

The government also promised to fund additional chemotherapy services in regional areas, with $5 million allocated for the implementation of a single state-wide enterprise chemotherapy prescribing system (ECPS).
