Well I went to see my GP, a new Irish doctor only in Oz for 6 months who is not very familiar with HCV and it's management. My regular GP has retired. She was not willing to prescribe for me. She wants to get advice from my Virologist in Sydney who had already written to my GP stating that I am well educated on available and new treatments in the pipeline, that he did not need to see me again and that I could access treatment through my GP when they became available thru the PBS. So, once again it's back on the treadmill. My GP did not want to write the prescription because she thought she would be liable if I used the script to procure 'unsafe' drugs from overseas. She will await advice from my virologist which could take a month and even then it is possible he is unaware that there is a safe and effective way of accessing these meds through the buyers group.
