The Medicines Use Review (MUR) is a free NHS service that allows you to have a private consultation with our pharmacist about your medicines. This includes all prescribed medicines, along with any medicines or supplements you may have purchased over the counter. It is different to an annual review with your doctor, as it focuses on increasing your knowledge of the medicines you take, why you take them, how you can take them more easily and pick up any problems you are having with your medicines.
What happens during the Medicines Use Review?
The pharmacist will ask you a series of questions about the medicines you are taking. You will also have the opportunity to ask the pharmacist any questions that you may have.
By the end of your Medicines Use Review you should:
Know more about your medicines and what they do Have learnt the best way to take your medicines Fully understand how your medicines are working to benefit your health You will be asked to give your consent that any information obtained during the Medicines Check Up Service may be shared with your GP, local health board or NHS Business Service.
