Women who have uncomplicated urinary tract infections can now access treatment at 100 participating pharmacies across NSW.
The state government's pharmacy prescribing trial officially began on May 15.
Health Minister Ryan Park said more community pharmacies will be included in the trial, which will see more than 5000 women receive infection care in a pharmacy setting, after the middle of the year.
"This will not only improve access to medications - but it will also alleviate the pressure on GPs and primary care services," he said.
Under the trial, the $20 patient consultation rebate will be covered by the government, even if no medicines are dispensed.
All females aged between 18 and 65 who are displaying symptoms consistent with an uncomplicated urinary tract infection are eligible to seek treatment at a participating pharmacy.
