STaRS: Non-collection of medication by clients

STaRS have noticed an increase in pharmacies not notifying the service when a client in receipt of a blue prescription medication (specifically physeptone or buprenorphine) has not collected their medication for three or more days.

It is important that the prescribing service of this medication is informed of these instances by the pharmacy, for a number of reasons. For more information, please view the article in the April CPSSOT newsletter
