Since 1 July 2015, you’ve had the option to have your HIV medications dispensed through your local community pharmacy (chemist) or through a hospital pharmacy.

1 From Hospital Pharmacies

You can continue to collect your HIV medication from the hospital pharmacy in the same way as you have in the past.
The choice is yours!

2 From Local Chemists

You will need to check in with your chemist if they are willing to supply your HIV medication. This will be an opt-in system for chemists. Talk to the chemist about immediate supply or if you'll need to leave your prescription and collect the HIV medication at a later time. Click here for a list of NSW chemists locations.

In inner city areas of Sydney, it is likely that you will be able to get HIV medication dispensed on the spot, like other medication. If you live in an outer suburban area, regional or rural area, you might need to drop your prescription into the chemist and come back a few days later to collect your medication. The choice is yours!

Your prescription will need to be dated 1 July 2015 or after to be dispensed by your local chemist.

3 From Online Pharmacies

You will be able to purchase your medication online and have it sent to a postal address of your choice.
