For Prescribers

Each year we work with 3500 health professionals across New South Wales to provide eligible people with assistive technology for communication, mobility, respiratory function and self-care to assist them to live safely at home.

Eligible prescribers

Prescribers are not required to register with or be approved by EnableNSW.  Prescribers with the required qualification and level of experience as outlined in the funding criteria may request equipment for eligible residents of NSW, regardless of the location of the clinical service.

Where applicable, prescribers must be registered through AHPRA.

A prescriber, without the required level of years of experience or previous prescriptions* may submit a request if they have been supervised by an eligible prescriber. In this case the supervisor’s details must be provided on the Equipment Request Form. The type of supervision is at the discretion of the clinical service and may include face to face, phone, emails or telehealth options.

*The number of previous prescriptions refers to prescriptions of this category of equipment not requests for EnableNSW funding.

Prescribing out of scope

You can request to be approved to prescribe items out of scope of your normal practice by sending a completed application form to EnableNSW. Click on the link below for further information or for the application form.
