Medicine Use Reviews

Medicine Use Reviews Fact: 50% of patients do not take their medication as intended or take their medication at all.

Often this is because that medication has unpleasant side effects, or the patient does not fully understand how and why they should be taking or using their medicines.

All of our pharmacies (except the online pharmacy) offer a free Medicines Check Up on the NHS. This is an opportunity for you to sit down and have a confidential chat with our Pharmacist about your medicines.

You will have a chance to find out what your medicines do and to discuss any concerns you may have, such as side effects that you experience. Often, simple changes, such as changing the time of day that you take your medicine, or taking it with food, can improve your symptoms.

The Pharmacist will make a short report of your consultation and a copy is sent to your GP if necessary, and you may have a copy if you want as well.

A Medicines Use Reviews is ‘a must’ for you if:

– You are unsure how and when to take your medicine
– Your symptoms don’t seem to be under control
– You have side-effects when you take your medicines
– You find it difficult to take your medicines

Just pop into our pharmacy to arrange a convenient time for your Medicine Use Reviews check up.
