MedsChecks

A MedsCheck is a service designed to provide in-pharmacy medicine review between pharmacists and patients to enhance quality use of Medicines and reduce the number of adverse medicine events. These services aim to support self-management of medicines by evaluating patient’s knowledge about their medicines. 

MedsCheck

A MedsCheck is a 15-30-minute consultation with one of our Simply Pharmacy pharmacists who will review and discuss all your medications. After the discussion, the pharmacist will provide you with a documented “Action Plan” which aims to help you manage your medications and health better.   During the MedsCheck consultation the Pharmacist will provide advice on:

  • What the medications are used for
  • How they should be taken and stored 
  • How they can affect other medical conditions 
  • Any side effects and any other relevant information

  • Patients who attend more than one doctor 
  • Patients who are unsure or confused about their medicines
