Get the best out of your medicines

If there's been a change in your prescribed medicines after a stay in a care setting, we can check you're taking the right medicines at the right time to help control your condition as best you can. By having a chat with one of our pharmacists, we'll help make sure the medicine you're prescribed by your doctor is the same as what was given to you in hospital or care setting.

Who can have an NHS Discharge Medicines Review?

The service is for anyone living in Wales who has been discharged from hospital or another care setting in the last four weeks. If you don't qualify for the service, you can still ask our pharmacists for advice on taking medicines.
