Discharge Medicines Service in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire and Nationwide
If you or someone that you act as a carer for is discharged from the hospital with new or changed medication, then we can help to make sure that they get the most from their medication and check to make sure that you understand how to manage it properly and have the support and advice that you require. This service is called the Discharge Medicines Service. To start the service we require a referral from another NHS organisation such as your doctor or your hospital.
Once our pharmacy has received a digital referral from the hospital or relevant organisation, we will review it against your old medication and medical history. Following this, our pharmacist will carry out a consultation with you or your carer to ensure you understand your medication regime and discuss any concerns.
