This is a medicine check-up service, which is useful if you regularly take several prescription medicines or are on medicines for a long-term illness. This confidential NHS service will help you to find out more about your medicines, identify any problems you may be having with them and help you to take your medicines to best effect.
NHS New Medicine Service
When you are prescribed a medicine to treat a long-term condition for the first time, the pharmacist will support you to use the medicine safely and to best effect.
The pharmacist will talk to you approximately two weeks after you first receive the medicine to see how you are getting on with it and to discuss any problems you may have. A second follow-up will be a month after you first receive the medicine. The service is only available to people using certain medicines; our pharmacist will give you details and offer this free NHS service, if this is available to you.
