Consultation: Introduction of the Automated Pharmacy Distribution System at the New Royal Adelaide Hospital

21 March 2016

The Public Service Association (PSA) is seeking feedback from all interested members about the Automated Pharmacy Distribution System in the new RAH and the new Guiding Principles for the use of Automated Dispensing Cabinets (ADCs) in Clinical Area.


A copy of the consultation paper, guidelines of use and correspondence to the PSA is attached here.


Although there is no current indicator of any negative impacts on staff numbers there will be significant changes to work practices, roles, and workflows. Training is also scheduled to occur for staff to adapt to the new system.


Members are encouraged to identify any gaps or issues of concern that may occur and provide feedback to the PSA by no later than Thursday 14 April 2016.
