A medicines use review is an appointment with a pharmacist to focus on how you are getting on with your medicines. It is an NHS service, so you do not need to pay for it.

The meeting is to:

  • Help you to find out more about the medicines you are taking
  • Pick up any problems you are having with your medicines
  • Improve the effectiveness of your medicines

If you have recently been prescribed a new medication it is important that you understand what the medicine is for, how to take it safely and what to look out for in the event that you experience side effects.

  • Asthma
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
  • Hypertension
  • Anti-coagulant

Did you know that as many as five million people are undiagnosed with high blood pressure in the UK?

High blood pressure causes strain on your blood vessels, which can lead to the narrowing of the vessels, blood clots and an increased risk of heart disease.

If the following describes your lifestyle you may be at risk:

  • Eating too much salt
  • Not eating enough fruit and vegetables
  • Not completing enough exercise
  • Being overweight
  • Drinking too much alcohol

Checking your blood pressure is quick, easy and non-invasive and can be done by a member of our team without an appointment.

To receive a blood pressure check, please visit your local Manor Pharmacy today.

Manor Pharmacy believe in supporting independent living for disabled people, or those with special needs who may experience problems with taking their medicines.

If you’re eligible for this service, your local pharmacist will assess your knowledge and use of medicines and, based on the information gathered, will invite you or your carer to discuss the different types of support available to help you take your medicines as intended.

The kind of support you may receive includes:

  • Medicines reminder charts
  • Medication Administration Record (MAR) charts
  • Medicines labels in larger fonts
  • Monitored Dosage Systems (these have the days of the week written on them to help ensure that the medicine is taken on the correct day and at the correct time)

Flu can be unpleasant, but if you are otherwise healthy it will usually clear up on its own within a week. However, flu can be more severe in certain people, such as:

  • anyone aged 65 and over
  • pregnant women
  • children and adults with an underlying health condition (particularly long-term heart or respiratory disease)
  • children and adults with weakened immune systems

Anyone in these risk groups is more likely to develop potentially serious complications of flu, such as pneumonia (a lung infection), so it’s recommended that they have a flu vaccine every year to protect them.

If you urgently need medication, contact your prescriber immediately to arrange a prescription. If this isn’t possible, you may be able to get medicine from our pharmacist in an emergency, subject to certain conditions.

You must have been prescribed the medicine before by a doctor, dentist, nurse independent prescriber, optometrist independent prescriber or other healthcare professional, who is registered in the UK. In addition to this, our pharmacist:

  • will usually need to see you face-to-face
  • must agree that you need the medicine immediately
  • will usually need evidence that you have been prescribed that medicine before
  • must be satisfied with the dose that is most appropriate for you to take

Our pharmacist may provide an emergency supply of up to 30 days’ treatment for most prescription medicines, with these exceptions:

  • insulin, an ointment, a cream or an asthma inhaler – the smallest pack size
  • the contraceptive pill – a full treatment cycle
  • liquid oral antibiotics – the smallest quantity to provide a full course of treatment
  • permitted controlled medicines (controlled drugs) – up to five days’ treatment. Permitted controlled medicines include a very limited range of medicines, such as those for epilepsy (phenobarbital). Many commonly used controlled medicines such as morphine or diamorphine can’t be supplied without a prescription by a pharmacist in an emergency
