I've got a great GP Girls
It's more the long term situation I'm concerned about.
Been sniffing around the Dept of Health website on how to apply for listing on the PBS...frucking riveting stuff let me tell you!!.....anyhoo, the manufacturers of the drug can lodge a submission in accordance with the relevant guidelines for referral to PBAC through an application process to list a Drug or Medicinal Preparation as a Pharmaceutical Benefit or some such BS like that apparently.
Think I will shoot off an email to the manufacturers and my local member too for good measure and see what happens. The next sitting of the Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee (PBAC) is in July I think?? My understanding is that they and the TGA decide among themselves what gets approval for PBS listing and what doesn't. They meet a few times a year to go through submissions and whatever else it is they do at these meetings
