As part of your ongoing treatment for any health conditions you may have, patients are invited to book medication reviews with either a doctor or a clinical pharmacist. Medication reviews should be done at least once a year, but in some cases you may be invited to book a review sooner than this. This goes for all patients, no matter how long they have been on the same medication for.
During a medication review, you are given a space to discuss how your medication is working for you, and you can also express any concerns you may have regarding your current medications. Medication reviews are exteamily beneficial to have, because:
- They help us to ensure you are on the correct medication for your condition.
- That your medication is working in the most effective way for you.
- That you are only taking the medication you need to take.
- Preventing medicine waste, saving money for you and the NHS.
