Information for Prospective Reviewers

The Convenor of the Independent Review (PBS) is seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified and experienced individuals to join the Register of Prospective Reviewers.

The primary task for a reviewer will be to prepare a report for consideration by the Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee (PBAC) on the issue(s) identified by an applicant for review. The outcomes of the review will be made publicly available. Further information about the work of reviewers can be found at Information for Reviewers.
