Medical kits for remote areas


You must keep a register showing details when medicines in your kit are used.

The register can be a simple notebook and should show:

  • the date and time of administration of the medication
  • name of the patient
  • the medicine given and amount used
  • the name of the doctor contacted for medical advice
  • the authorised person's signature.

For morphine injections, the balance of stock must also be recorded.

Records must be kept for at least two years.

Emergency medical kits

You must keep a register showing details of when medicines in your kit are supplied and used.

Use the registers provided in the emergency medical kit remote order form.

The register for recording morphine use is on page three. The register for Schedule 4 drugs is on page four.

You must keep a copy of every delivery docket and invoice for drugs in your kit.
