We have the know-how you need.

General Practitioners & Prescribers

This section has been created to be a one-stop shop for pharmacotherapy providers. 

We have all the forms available or links to the forms for GPs here on our website.

(including permits, resources & links to research & documents of interest etc)


PAMS is funded to work on any pharmacotherapy, client-related issue or concern.

PAMS provides short-term case management until the primary problem or

issue of concern has been resolved. 

Please note, we do not work with patients who are on other S8 opioids –

 unless they wish to start a pharmacotherapy program.


GP’s can contact PAMS or refer a pharmacotherapy patient if:

  • You feel it's essential to start a patient on the program today, however, they don't have the money to pay for the first dose / few doses

  • You have a patient who is re-starting a program and can't locate a dispensing point (possibly due to a poor track record in terms of payment or behaviour, or because there are no vacancies or because there are no service providers where the patient resides)

  • You've had to terminate a patient from their pharmacotherapy program with your service and you would like PAMS to source a new GP prescriber

  • You have a pharmacotherapy patient who informs you that they are not able to continue dosing at their current pharmacy (for whatever reason) and a new dosing point needs to be sourced asap

  • You have the capacity to take on more pharmacotherapy patients

  • You are retiring or leaving your current practice and need to find vacancies with other GP prescribers for some of your pharmacotherapy patients

  • You have a problem with a specific pharmacotherapy patient or group of patients (that has not been mentioned above) and you think we might be able to help

  • You have a patient or number of patients who are express concern about an aspect of their pharmacotherapy program and you feel this needs to be reported

  • You need an independent third party (PAMS worker) to help negotiate a treatment agreement for a patient who has been difficult to manage in your clinic
