Wessex AHSN has produced the "Meet Mo" video to encourage patients – who take several types of medicine – to book a review with their local pharmacist.
This is because, over time, people who take many different types of medicines for different reasons can find their treatments sometimes do not work well together.
A medicines review can help prevent trips to the GP or even hospital, and most importantly, help people feel better. A local pharmacist is a good place to have this conversation. So the benefits of a medicines review can help everyone: less pressure on GPs and hospital services, fewer medicines prescribed and, overall, patients feel better and are better able to manage their health.
Watch the video below to learn more.
