For those patients on repeat medication you will be aware that we look to reviewing your repeat medication at intervals throughout the year. These intervals vary according to the type of medication. These reviews allow us to monitor efficacy, side effects and arrange any monitoring that is mandated by the nature of the medication such as blood pressure, ECG’s or blood tests.
We are aware that the Stalbridge chemist is offering reviews of patient’s medication at the chemist shop. These invitations are on behalf of the pharmacy, not Stalbridge Surgery, and are separate entity to the treatment reviews held at the surgery.
Should you wish to have your treatment reviewed by Stalbridge pharmacy you are very welcome. However, this doesn’t affect the need for a treatment review by the clinical team at the surgery when the appropriate interval is expiring.
