We can organise to do a thorough check of all your prescriptions in your home at a time that is convenient for you.
This service is particularly helpful if you:
- Take multiple doses of regular medicines daily
- Have had recent changes to your medication routine
- Are attending more than one GP or specialist
- Have recently been discharged from hospital
To have a Home Medicine Review done, your doctor needs to fill out a referral, which is given to your pharmacist.
The review gives you the opportunity to ask questions about your medications that your doctor may not have had time to answer, and can help you better understand the function and purpose of the medications you are prescribed, as well as how doses are to be taken, and where medicines should be stored.
This in turn assists your GP, pharmacist and specialist develop an effective medication management plan. This ensures that all your prescription medications, over the counter medicines and vitamin supplements are suitable to be taken together.
A Home Medicine Review is a fully government-subsidised service.
