New Medicine Service
For a number of reasons, including side effects, the need for further information and practicalities of taking their medicines, it is estimated that between 33 and 50% of medicines are not taken as prescribed. The NMS provides early support to patients to identify any problems they may be having with their medicines and identify solutions to these problems. As part of the service any further information you may need is also provided. This should enable you to maximise the benefits of the medication they have been prescribed. This consultation is based on three discussions with the pharmacist based on different times after starting the new medication prescribed to you.

We accept unwanted medicines, from households and individuals, which require safe disposal. Medicines will be collected and disposed of safely from pharmacies
