All patients who are prescribed any medication on prescription are required to have at least an annual medication review with the surgery. This may be in the form of a blood test, blood pressure check, appointment with one of our specialist nurses, pharmacist or doctor.
These reviews are required to ensure that your medication is continually prescribed according to NHS guidance and that all of your symptoms/conditions are well managed.
If you are prescribed a controlled drug please click onto the below link which will provide you with more information.
