Media centre

The media plays an important role in building a medicinewise Australia.

We work closely with the media to provide independent, accurate and evidence-based information on all things medicinewise, including medicines and medical tests.

Our media releases address current issues for both health professionals and our wider audiences, and provide a good overview of the wide range of topics we comment on.

We also distribute news to the media about NPS research, evaluation, and our publications including Australian Prescriber, RADAR and MedicinesTalk.

Read about our high-profile projects and campaigns or join our conversations on Facebook and Twitter.

We have a dedicated media team and a range of spokespeople with various clinical backgrounds available for interview.

If you are a journalist seeking comment on a story or more information on any of our programs or campaigns please contact Elisabeth Bowdler, Media Adviser on 02 8217 8667 or Alex Chapman on 02 8217 8733. For urgent media requests outside of office hours, please call 0419 618 365. You can also email an enquiry.
