Prescription clinical assessment and medicine optimisation

Improving the health and well-being of the local community

The Medicine Use Review (MUR) is a free service that is supported by the NHS and consists of an accredited pharmacist conducting a private review of all your medication. During this service the pharmacist will:

  • improve your understanding of your medication and the condition being treated.
  • highlight any side effects of your medication and suggest solutions when appropriate.
  • demonstrate the use of different devices (such as inhalers and spacers).
  • identify any unwanted medication.
  • at the end of the review we will agree an action plan to improve your condition, which can also be sent to your GP for consideration.

The New Medicine Service (NMS) is also a free service supported by the NHS that provides support for people with long-term conditions who are starting a newly prescribed medicine. People often have problems when they start a new medicine. As part of the scheme, the pharmacist will support you over several weeks to use the medicine safely and to best effect. This involves three appointments, during which at first our pharmacist will talk to you about your medication, then at the second appointment you can discuss any issues you have with your medication and at the third appointment you can have a final catch-up with the pharmacist.
