Local Nationals MP Anne Webster says the Federal Government’s pharmacy dispensing policy needs a re-think.

She says the scheme, which will allow you to get double the amount of medication with your script, won’t make a difference for people in rural and regional Australia.

The Member for Mallee says Labor Minister Mark Butler has got the scheme wrong for locals in the Mallee.

Funding for the scheme will only help pharmacies who dispense 50 thousand or more scripts a year.

The Member for Mallee says the move won’t help regional areas.
