When you may get an appointment with one of the pharmacy team
Our pharmacists can provide telephone and face-to-face appointments. The pharmacists,
pharmacy technicians or the doctors often review some or all of your medicines and
may want to talk with you about the medicines you are currently taking. In the practice
we like to review your medicine at least once a year, or more often if needed.
You may have heard people referring to Polypharmacy. It means lots of medicines.
A medicine review is particularly useful for people who take a lot of medicines;
for these people their medicines review may be called a Polypharmacy Review. Further
information is on the NHS Scotland’s website Polypharmacy: Manage medicines or the
Managing Multiple Medicines app (available at: Polypharmacy: Manage Medicines)
Information on how you and your doctor (or other healthcare professional) can work
together to decide whether you need a medicine and, if so, which to prescribe, can
be found in the Healthcare Improvement Scotland publication Medicines in Scotland:
What's the right treatment for me?. This booklet also explains the likely benefits
and possible risks of medicines.
