National Competency Standards Framework

NSW Health Safety Alert Broadcast System (SABS)

Developed for use in NSW but useful for pharmacists in all regions, NSW Health's Safety Alert Broadcast System (SABS) was adapted from the UK's National Health Service Safety Alert Broadcast System. Its aim is to provide a systematic approach to the distribution and management of patient safety information to NSW health services. Each alert specifies action to be taken by health services, the timeframe in which such action must occur, and specific responsibility for the actions.

The NSW Health's Safety Alert Broadcast System (SABS) website provides a register of alerts.
