Access to SafeScript is available to all registered clinicians through a secure web portal at www.safescript.vic.gov.au. This portal can also be accessed when you hand write prescriptions or practise in a hospital.

SafeScript is designed to be integrated into clinical workflow. This enables you to receive pop-up notifications to help quickly identify when you need to view information in SafeScript. Based on your clinical software see instructions below on how to integrate.

If you are unsure which of these options apply to you or your clinical software is not listed here, please contact SafeScript technical support or the SafeScript general enquiries team via the contact details on this page.

  • Accessing SafeScript through portal (includes handwritten prescribing and hospitals)

    Create a bookmark or shortcut to https://hp.safescript.vic.gov.au on each computer used for prescribing or dispensing for easy access to SafeScript.

    See the short video below about how the SafeScript portal works.

    You will need to install an updated version of your clinical software. Your software vendor will contact you about the next version of your software. If you have not yet been contacted, please contact your software vendor.

    Step 2

    Ensure your Practice Manager, Pharmacist-in-Charge, or IT Administrator has arranged to install the SafeScript Notification App on each of your computers used for prescribing or dispensing.
