What is a medication review?

medication1Medication reviews are important to ensure that your medicines and doses are appropriate and that you are not experiencing any unwanted side effects.  We may contact you by letter, phone call and increasingly by text message.

It is important that you attend review appointments even if you feel well and are happy with your medicines in order for the doctor to monitor your progress.

If you are asked to attend the surgery for a review then no further prescriptions will be issued until you have attended the review appointment. 

Please do not use urgent appointments for a medication review.
