Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication may be asked to see or speak to a doctor, pharmacist or practice nurse to review regular medications.

Some medication requires monitoring and it may be unsafe to continue a repeat medication if you do not attend when requested.

 

Medication Available from the Chemist.

This is sometimes called ‘over the counter medication’

NHS England have published the following advice;

Medications that can be purchased over the counter from a pharmacy and other outlets such as supermarkets should be purchased. This includes patients who are normally exempt or have a prepayment certificate.

You should seek advice from a chemist for self-limiting conditions or conditions that can be managed by self-care, i.e. that the person suffering does not normally need to seek medical care but may decide to seek help with symptom relief from a local pharmacy and use an over the counter medicine.
