Home Medication Review
Each year, over 230,000 Australians end up in the hospital from taking medications incorrectly or in a combination that turns toxic.
A home medications review can help you avoid this by improving collaboration between you, your Doctor an the pharmacist resulting in better patient care and medication management.
Your Doctor has arranged for an accredited pharmacist to visit you at your home to review your medications and ensure there are no complications mixing multiple medications and brands.
Expect a call from a local accredited pharmacist over the next couple of days. The Doctor has passed across your details and they will call to arrange a time and day to visit you at your home.
Your Doctor will be notified if you cancel this important appointment.
This service costs you nothing beyond the standard doctor consultation fee if applicable. Home Medication reviews are a government initiative to reduce your risk of unnecessary hospitalisation.
