PB 23 of 2012 Arrangements as made
This instrument revokes the National Health (Chemotherapy Pharmaceuticals Access Program) Special Arrangement 2011 (No. PB 87 of 2011) (CPAP) and the National Health (Trastuzumab) Special Arrangement 2011 (No. PB 94 of 2011) (Trastuzumab). CPAP and Trastuzumab are replaced by special arrangement, the National Health (Efficient Funding of Chemotherapy) Special Arrangement 2011 (No. PB 79 of 2011) (EFC) which commenced on 1 December 2011. It was intended that all suppliers (including public hospital authorities) would commence supplying chemotherapy medicines under EFC from 1 December 2011 and that CPAP and Trastuzumab would be revoked on that day, however software delays meant that some public hospitals were unable to transition on that date. From 1 April 2012 chemotherapy medicines will no longer be able to be supplied by public hospitals under CPAP or Trastuzumab, as, on that date, both CPAP and Trastuzumab special arrangements will be revoked by this instrument.
