Medication Reviews

 

BACK TO MAIN INDEX

 

A Structured Medication Review takes place with a Clinical Pharmacist and is a comprehensive review of your medications to ensure they are prescribed safely and appropriately, as well as confirming that medicines you have been taking for a long time are all still necessary. The Clinical Pharmacist will discuss your medicines with you and answer any questions or concerns you may have.

There are several reasons why you may have been offered this review. These include but are not limited to:

  • You are taking a large number of different medicines
  • You are taking medicines which are frequently associated with medication errors
  • You are taking medicines which can be addictive
  • You have recently been discharged from hospital

Please allow up to 40 minutes for this appointment. If your appointment is face to face, please bring your medicines with you. You may wish to have a family member, friend or carer with you.
