MEDICATION REVIEW
 
The practice is running a new service to help you with your medicines.  It is good practice for us to review your repeat medicines at least once a year. The purpose of the review is to check that you are getting the best treatment and to agree what medicines you are going to take.  A medication review is a chance to check that your medicines are the best ones for you. It involves checking your medicines are working and not causing side effects.  It is also a chance for you to tell us how you are getting on with your medicines and to ask questions and find out more about them.
 
We recommend that you make an appointment to have a medication review with your GP or practice nurse (delete as appropriate). The review lasts about 20 minutes. At the review there will be a chance to have your questions answered and to have the purpose of your medicines explained.  A check will be made on any monitoring or changes to your medicines that are needed.
 
The purpose of the review is not to save money nor is it to check if you are taking your medicines. No medicines will be altered without agreement with you and your doctor.
 
The enclosed leaflet provides more information about the medication review clinic.
 
Your sincerely

We recommend that you make an appointment to have a medication review with the practice pharmacist (chemist).  The review lasts about 20 minutes.  The pharmacist will be able to answer your questions and help explain about your medicines.  The pharmacist and doctor share information that is important about your treatments.  The pharmacist will check if any monitoring or changes to your medicines are required based on the latest evidence.  He/she will give you independent information and advice.  The purpose of the review is not to save money nor is it to check if you are taking your medicines. No medicines will be altered without agreement with you and your doctor.
