Medication and Disease Reviews
Sometimes when you request a medication. The doctor my recommend you have a review of your medication to ensure that you are still on the correct medication and that the condition you are being treated for is properly controlled. This may involve having blood or other tests arranged.
Pharmacists and nurses all take part in monitoring and reviewing medication. We also have reminders on your record to flag up if you are due any kind of check up, especially if you have a long term illness or condition. Any member of the team may be involved in contacting you by letter or phone to alert you of a review being overdue.
