Working with our partners we have developed a range of patient information materials in different community languages to support and prepare people who have been invited for a medication review with their GP, pharmacist or other healthcare professional.
These materials are free to use and can be printed and used in paper format, or shared electronically with patients by email, text or any other electronic systems used within your workplace.
People who may benefit from a medication review are those who are taking several medicines regularly or are taking medicines for long term conditions. The medication review can help to identify any medicines that are no longer appropriate or any that may need a change in dose.
The resources can be printed and used in paper format or shared electronically with patients via email, text message or any other electronic systems used by GP practices.
They are available in the following languages, including audio versions for visually impaired people: English, Arabic, Bengali, Gujarati, Polish, Punjabi Gurmukhi, Punjabi Shahmukhi, Romanian, and Urdu.
A new animation has also been created to help patients think about their medicines and to prepare for a Structured Medication Review:
