Medication Reviews

Medication Review & Checking Service

Did you know over half of us may not be taking regularly prescribed medication correctly and could be putting our long term health at risk!
Our FREE NHS medication review service is available to anyone taking regular medication, allowing you to discuss in private any concerns you may have regarding your medication. You may simply want to know more about the medicines you are taking, how they work, if they react with other medication such as pain relief medication (ibuprofen) and the most effective way to take them.
The medication review service is extremely useful for patients on medication for long term illnesses such as Asthma, COPD, High Blood Pressure and Diabetes to name a few.
The medication review is not long and usually lasts no more than 15 minutes. During this time you will normally discuss the following:

  • The purpose of the medication
  • Any reactions to other medication
  • Side effects that you may be experiencing
  • Ease of use and swallowing
  • Techniques on how to use the medication especially inhalers
  • Symptoms are not under control
  • Best time to take the medication
