New medicine service

Introduction

Starting to use a new medicine can be a daunting and confusing experience. Some medicines have important instructions to follow. If used correctly they can really improve the treatment of your condition. If used incorrectly they can fail to work at all and may cause side effects. When you are prescribed a new medicine it can help to talk to an expert.

Service description

We can provide advice on how to use your new medicine to help improve the treatment of your condition, your symptoms and your quality of life. Small changes can make a big difference. We will then be happy to contact you after a couple of weeks to check how you are getting on.
