Why we screen for drug and alcohol use
We use drug and alcohol screening to monitor medical practitioners and students where there is a history of or concerns about substance or alcohol misuse or dependence. Negative screening results are an effective way to know that practitioners are not affected by substances or alcohol and can continue safely in practice or training. If you have a condition on your registration that requires you to undergo drug or alcohol screening, this page contains all the information you will need to comply with these conditions.
Please note, these policies apply from 4 June 2018.
