Approved medications

If you need a medical or surgical appliance, for example, an insulin pump, you will get it from your local health office. 

Consumable appliances are supplied through your community pharmacy. For example, syringes, needles and diagnostic strips.

You may need medication or equipment that is not on the approved lists. If so, your community pharmacists can apply to us to get it under the scheme.
