Get the New Medicine Service in Bury today! The New Medicine Service (NMS) is a free NHS service. It offers support to patients with long-term health conditions who have just been prescribed medication in order to help improve medication adherence. The initial focus of NMS was on certain patient categories and medical conditions.
This service’s goal is to increase patient treatment compliance, which will then decrease medicine waste. Additionally, by detecting adverse medication reactions early on in the course of treatment, hospital admissions due to these reactions can be decreased. You will receive lifestyle advice from the pharmacist during your appointments to aid in the management of your condition.
Who is eligible for the New Medicine Service in Bury?
You may be qualified for the NMS service if you begin a new medication for antiplatelet/anticoagulant therapy, asthma/COPD, hypertension, or diabetes. You will be offered this service by a member of our staff, who will also request your written consent before proceeding.
During the initial consultation, one of our pharmacists will provide you some general information about your new prescription and the service. They will also make arrangements with you for a phone or in-person follow-up session in two weeks. The pharmacists will inquire about your experience with your medication during your follow-up appointment, look into any problems you may have had, and offer any necessary guidance and support.
In one to two weeks, the pharmacist will schedule a follow-up appointment to make sure you understand your new medication and that there are no side effects.
