Structured Medication Reviews

Structured Medication Review with a Clinical Pharmacist

You might be invited for a face-to-face or telephone consultation to discuss your current medication. Our Clinical Pharmacist is Pamela Nyatanga.

Why do I need to have a medication review?

The medication review appointment is a private and confidential meeting to discuss your medication. We know that people that take more than 4 or more different medicines each day need more help to ensure they are getting on well with their medicines. It is recommended that a review of your medication is carried out at least once each year (or more frequently if necessary).

The purpose of the structured medication review is to help you get the best from your medication as well as to help minimise problems arising from your medicines.

You and the pharmacist will discuss your all your medication in detail, including those prescribed elsewhere and bought over-the-counter. You will be able to ask questions about your medication and the pharmacist will amongst other things check your understanding of your medicines and that the relevant monitoring has been done. Any changes to your medication will be made with your agreement, and a record of the consultation will be kept in your medical notes.
